National Careers Service customer
“Once again thank you for making me feel so at ease yesterday. I have to admit that had very low expectations of how the National Careers Service could help but you blew that out of the water! Your understanding of my needs and situation has made me feel very confident that the support is there to help me get back into employment at a steady pace.”
European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) IT qualification
“I started my level 2 ECDL in September 2018 at Huntingdon Adult Learning and Skills Centre and completed in mid February 2018.

This has given me confidence to continue learning, the staff were all so lovely and helpful and made it all so easy to understand!” Teresa’s Tutor Christine says: “Teresa found being able to study at home really helpful as she was able to fit it around family.”
