After failing my GCSE Maths and not really knowing how to gain a qualification, I found Think Employment online. I contacted them and straight away found them to be very helpful and supportive. The course itself was tailored to my individual requirements. The tutor was always on hand with advice and support. The online videos were so valuable to look back on to learn a subject. I passed my exam within 8 weeks of starting the course! Highly recommended.
I cannot recommend Think employment highly enough. Both the course and the staff were absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much.
I really enjoyed working through the course. The content was easy to access and understand. Tutors were brilliant and the regular q&a sessions were very helpful. I am so happy I am looking at doing another course with Think employment, I have a new desire to continue to gain new knowledge and skills andthat I enrolled on this
