Quotes from learners on their Eden Experience…

“Due to the Covid-19 pandemic it has not been possible to attend college sessions and these have been carried out over Zoom group meetings. Despite the unprecedented circumstances I have found the zoom sessions just as informative and fun as the taught sessions in class. Nicola has been very supportive over the last 3 months and has been available to contact should I have had any questions.  I am happy with the amount of work I have been set throughout and have worked very hard to ensure my work is always submitted on time. Nicola offers very clear feedback on any units that have been returned to ‘top up’ to ensure that all my submitted work is up to standard.”  Carolyn Wright, EYE level 3

“I have found the course very informative and I have learnt so much on the behind the scenes aspects at an early years setting, as well as how everything practitioners do in the setting benefits the child to grow in every area of their development. This course has pushed me to achieve more in my career, giving me the confidence to aim for a higher role in my workplace. I felt comfortable in each session and Nicola encouraged me to take part which built up my confidence. The taught sessions were fun and very informative, Nicola has been great throughout the course, giving support when needed and teaching in a relaxed, fun way which was perfect for me.”  Leanne Baldwin, EYE level 3

“Thanks so much for all your help through the taught sessions which has helped me complete the written work for my level 2. I feel that I have truly gained confidence in my own abilities through this course. Thanks for all the support.”  Natalie Bowers, EYP level 2

“Thank you so much for the help and support you have given me throughout this course. I have taken in so much and after an initial wobble at the start, you gave me the confidence to carry on. I highly recommend you and this course to anyone.”  Claire Boram, EYE level 3

“Thank you so much for your continued support. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and have found the online sessions really useful.” Claire Bowman, T&L level 3

“Thank you so much for all your support, guidance and help along the way, I would not have made it without it! I have found this course challenging at times but Nicola has provided me with great support and guidance to help me manage it. I have found the course interesting and it has helped me to build confidence within my practice. Thank you” Michelle Taylor-Cooke, EYP level 2

“I have really enjoyed completing the Level 2 Early Years Practitioner course. The tutors and face to face/online sessions have been extremely helpful. I look forward to completing the Level 3 course.”  Amy Fillary, EYP level 2

“Thank you, I’ve learnt a lot with this course, especially from the taught sessions with Nicola. I feel confident using what I have learnt when returning to the pre-school in September.” Kellie Stratton, EYP level 2

“I have found my written work much easier to do with the support of the online lessons that Nicola has given throughout these uncertain times (Covid-19). I feel I have learnt a lot through my course on understanding how children develop and learn.”  Leigh Hallett, EYE level 3

“I have found the course useful and the taught sessions informative and helpful and now feel more confident in my job role.” Claire McKenna, EYE level 3

“The evening sessions have been invaluable – as a childminder I couldn’t have achieved this training otherwise. The venue is fab and very welcoming. Discussing topics and meeting new settings was also excellent as we learnt lots from each other and experience many different points of view.  Training, content and delivery is very well guided and taught with innovative conversation prompts and subjects along with material to read, quizzes etc. Have very much enjoyed the sessions and the feedback – excellent – thank you!”  Nicola Hendon, EYAP level 4

“I have really enjoyed studying for my level 3. The taught sessions were always gone through in good detail making it easy to complete the tasks being set. Judith & Nicola have provided me with constant support – always at the end of the phone or responding to emails when I needed help.  I have recommended Eden Training to friends and I would be interested in taking on level 4 at a later date to further my knowledge even more.” Brooke Howells, EYE level 3 

“The course has taught me new found research skills. It was a bit of work in a short period of time but worthwhile.  The tutors were really helpful with explaining the criteria and always happy to give extra support and advice when needed.  Work was marked and given back promptly and I have always been kept in the loop of where I am and how I am doing.”  Lucy Furnish, EYAP level 4 

“Through my time at Eden I have really enjoyed my courses and found the staff and support amazing.  I have been here for 2 years completing my level 2 & 3 and have enquired about further courses. So in all the training, staff and continues support is second to none!”  Jodie Smith, EYE level 3 

“I would recommend Eden Training to other people interested, I couldn’t thank Nicola enough, I would never have passed without her help and support throughout. I learnt a lot from my taught sessions with Judith who was a great tutor, highly recommend, so laid back and welcoming.”  Jodie Kirby, Teaching & Learning in Schools level 2  

“My experience at Eden college has been great, I really enjoyed my time here and learnt a lot. The staff have been great at helping me boost my confidence and help me finish my level 1. I loved my time at Eden and would come again. They offered me so much help and support which I found really useful.” Emma Cunningham, Childcare level 1, Study Program  

“I have really enjoyed being a student with Eden! Their course and staff has been fantastic! I would definitely come back to Eden for higher levels such as 4&5.  The communication has been brilliant and happy with the speed work is marked and evaluated and would recommend Eden Training to anyone thinking of taking a childcare course!” Mark Shelley, EYE level 3  

“I found the course fantastic. I did this in a very short space of time, but the staff were always very helpful & would answer any questions or queries I had. It is a very relaxed & happy atmosphere & makes you want to do well. Whenever you ring with a query staff are very helpful. I was very dubious as to whether to do my level 3, but with all the support I have had with my level 2 I will definitely be doing it.” Melanie Wyer, Teaching & Learning in Schools level 2  

“All of the staff here at Eden have gone above & beyond any expectations that I had. When I was ready to give up on my learning midway through the course, the tutors supported me & gave me the encouragement I needed to continue. Not only did I continue, I grew too. Learning assistant was easy & simple to use. The taught sessions were informative & motivational as well as the perfect opportunity to talk to others doing the same course. Great experience, thank you.” Anita Shepherd, Teaching & Learning in Schools level 3  

“Overall the course was very well structured from the first interview to the final sign off. Support sessions were very helpful & informative. Assignments were clearly worded & supported by the textbook. The tutors were helpful & I knew they were always available if I had any questions outside of the support sessions.  Learning Assistant was easy to use & access. Observations objectives were clearly outlined in advance to the event so I had time to plan and organise resources. The feedback I received was of great help & encouraged me to progress.” Claire Morgan, Teaching & Learning in Schools level 2
