I have worked with Lisa over many years first when she was my assessor studying my Level 3. Lisa was fantastically supportive and encouraging; she built up my confidence, inspiring me to train as an assessor myself and she also mentored me during this training. I continued to work as a nursery practitioner, eventually moving onto the role of Deputy Head. While fulfilling this role, I studied my Level 4 with Lisa, bringing Lisa and Suzanne into my setting to train 5 candidates in their Level 2. I am now the Head of the nursery and value the training that I received from both Lisa and Suzanne, and would encourage all my students to study with them. The 5 candidates have developed and become competent members of the team and I am looking forward to continuing to train my future students with Lisa and Suzanne.
I just want to thank you so much Suzanne for believing in me and helping me so much these last two years. I couldn’t have done my Level 2 without your support.
Thank you! I will be in touch about my level 3.
I would highly recommend Premier Early Years Training. All the team are professional and very supportive. They took on two of our students who were struggling with their CACHE level 3 qualifications and have done a remarkable job supporting them through their qualifications. They are an extremely diverse and inclusive training provider
I thoroughly enjoyed the whole 9 months on the course and felt it fitted really well into my time, the classes were flexible and were arranged around a mutually convenient time for all.
There is no doubt that both Lisa and Suzanne made this a lovely experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them in their roles in Early Years Training. I wish them lots of luck in their new venture, and who knows if I decide to do Level 3, I’ll definitely see if they’ll have me!
"I want to thank you both for giving me the opportunity to get a level 3 in children's education. Thank you for believing in me and supporting me. English is the third language for me, but I tried very hard to fulfil all the tasks. During these three years, I have acquired not only knowledge and skills in the field of children's education, but also improved my vocabulary and grammar and my computer skills.
I understand a lot and learned a lot during these three years and I will definitely put into practice all my knowledge and skills.
Thank you so much again for everything"
"Thank you Premier! You have been amazing with the support and encouragement you have provided for me from the online tutorials to the layout of the course materials.
It has been a learning experience for me and I have already been in discussion with my new employer regarding how I would like to proceed with my qualification in my new role.
You never realise how much you do on a daily basis through everyday practice and when you come to put it to paper we work hard as SENCo's, but what a rewarding experience when you know you have helped so many children in their journey"
Suzanne was my tutor when I was studying at a local sixth form college for my Level 1 health & social care award. We all enjoyed Suzanne’s classes because she made learning fun again.
Suzanne was a great tutor because she explained things properly. She made us feel important. She supported us with everything and encouraged us to push further. Suzanne listened to us in depth and really took in what I needed help with. Our class felt like a family.
I wish Suzanne all the very best for her new training business.
I have worked as a course coordinator in Childcare and a tutor of Childcare with Lisa as our IQA for over 3 years. In that time I have found Lisa Tray to be an excellent IQA. She is knowledgeable, attentive , flexible and approachable. If I contact her with a question she gets straight back to me and is patient. She is non-judgemental and always offers suggestions and identifies any required actions. She is well organised and has supported us well during and through to the end of each qualification we have delivered.
She will always go that extra mile.
I am glad the Lisa is going to continue working with us.
