    I have learnt much much more from this course than I expected. I have really enjoyed it and now understand so much more when it comes to teaching ! It’s also boosted my personal self confidence, speaking to a room of people and knowing I am able to control the room and keep their attention. My tutor was amazing, I got really quick responses via email and all the help and guidance I needed. I would definitely recommend !

As soon as I can I will certainly enroll at the next level of this qualification.

  9. Abida Perveen

    In the beginning, I was a bit afraid. How the course will be, how I will manage and also about the tutor. But now I can say to everybody, go for it without thinking, even for a second. You will have a good tutor who is a superb leader in this course. You will get a quick response from him. Even if you get stuck somewhere and ask questions do 100s of emails or calls he will response you instantly. Good wishes and respect for him Chris you are a great tutor. Hope and wish to see you some point in person and say thanks.


    Completing the AET (was formerly PTTLS) has given me the confidence and skills to deliver training to adult learners. I do not come from a training background so the theory behind how people learn has been invaluable. I researched providers of AET via Google and there were a lot and I was concerned about signing up to a company that wasn’t reputable. With this in mind, I used the link to CTC Supplies via a reputable agency and have been very pleased with the professionalism and online support provided and would have no hesitation in recommending them as a provider for the training. Studying for the qualification has given me credibility as well a confidence

  11. Chris Turner

    We really appreciate your lovely feedback and we are extremely pleased you have gained so much knowledge and enthusiasm for teaching!

  12. Chris Turner

    It has been lovely working with you and I am so pleased to see your great comments. I look forward to working with you again in the future as you gain experience and progress towards your Level 5 Diploma.

  13. Leah B

    Started this course months ago and lost a little bit of motivation at the beginning as I find it hard to concentrate for long but once I got stuck back in I was amazed at how easy it was to learn from the online content and videos and apply this to the workbook tasks. I enjoyed the assessment method as the written tasks were broken down into easy sections and while I was apprehensive of filming a 15 min video it was actually fun! Chris literally replied to answer questions immediately which was so helpful and reassuring. Overall an excellent course that I would happily recommend to anyone going into teaching.

  14. Chris Turner

    Thank you for the lovely feedback. It is really good to hear that you found our content easy to follow. I wish you all the best with your teaching.

  15. Rachel Badrock

    Fantastic and informative course! Chris is always in hand with support and guidance! Would not hesitate to recommend CTC Training!

  16. Chris Turner

    Thank you for your positive comments. It has been a pleasure working with you on this qualification.

  17. Zahra Sefiani

    I found this course great to be able to fit in with working full time. The course units were clearly set out so you knew exactly what you had to do. I didn’t think doing an online course would be easy to do. All the online content and assessments were very useful and I have learnt a lot. Thank you so much.

  18. Chris Turner

    Thank you for feedback – we really appreciate it.

  19. Amanda Cherry

    There are so many courses out there for teacher training. I am so glad I chose this one. It has been informative and very rewarding for me to achieve this award.
    I have enjoyed the work to be completed, although challenging at times.
    Chris has been very efficient at answering questions and grading work quickly. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company.

  20. Chris Turner

    Thank you for your kind review. It has been a pleasure working with you – good luck with your future teaching!

  21. Gareth Davies

    This is the ideal course for somebody who wishes to get a foot on the education & training ladder but doesn’t have masses of spare time to commit. I found the open ended timescale really useful in fitting around my busy life and it helped to eradicate any stress regarding completion of the course. Chris was a friendly tutor and always ready to respond to my questions or issues, even out of office hours. This is my first attempt at 100% online education and I certainly won’t hesitate to use CTC training to aid my career in the future. Great value for money too.

    Thank you

  22. Chris Turner

    Thank you for the review, we do really appreciate you taking the time feedback, particularly positive feedback such as this. I hope to work with you again in the future!

  23. elena may

    After taking a few years off from studying I was unsure as to whether I would be any good at this. However I can not praise this course enough. It has been fully explained, fully supported and I have not at any point felt out of my comfort zone or unable to approach for support. The online sessions were easy to follow and all explained really well. This has definitely settled me back into studying and I look forward to attempting higher levels.

  24. Chris Turner

    Thank you so much for your kind words. We always try to support people as much as possible and i’m glad you appreciated this support through your award. Good luck with your future qualifications!

  25. Jason Clements

    This course is well structured with plenty of course material to assist in completing your assignments. Each unit gives you a course reading booklet you can download to refer too. uploading completed assignments is made easy and once they are marked the most important thing is the feedback from your tutor, this is invaluable, so you can reflect on your work and prepare for the next unit. CTC are very helpful should you need assistance at any time and I would personally like to thank Chris for all his feedback and support. I would highly recommend CTC Training and Education and I will be using them again in the future. Many thanks for everything.

  26. Chris Turner

  35. Simon Creasey

    Wonderful course and I got a lot more out of it thanks thought!!! I have just set up a business to pass on my expertise. This course has taught me how to look at delivery from the learner’s perspective not mine. This means that my learners will be more engaged, motivated and learn more!! That should mean more recommendations and repeat customers. A win win!!! Great support from CTC throughout. My final assessment was teaching guitar and I enjoyed it so much I am now looking to add this as another income stream!!!

  36. Chris Turner

    Thank you for the brilliant feedback. We are so pleased that this course has given you so much.

  37. Rebecca

    I have been really impressed with this course. I spent a long time looking at various providers before I settled on this course based on previous student feedback and I have not regretted my decision. The course was easy to access and work through in my own time and by working intensely I was able to complete the level 3 award in just a few weeks. It would have been just as easy to work through the content at a slower pace. My tutor was excellent and seems to work 24/7 because feedback was so prompt and even received over the weekend. He answered the couple of questions I asked even faster. The course was excellent value compared to others and allowed me to meet my objectives and receive the qualification I needed easily.

  38. Chris Turner

    Rebecca, thank you for your fantastic feedback which you have forwarded to us at the office. We are so pleased you have enjoyed your course and were happy with your purchase. We hope to work with you again in the future should you decide to gain higher level awards in your chosen field!

  39. Kerry rolls

  40. Chris Turner

    Kerry, thank you so much for your kind words – I wish you all the best with your future teaching!

  41. Chloe Grimes

    This course was really really good and very informative . The support from Chris was second to none especially when I needed assistance with completing the course in time for another course that required the level 3 as a pre requisite. The feed back and speed to questions I had was brilliant. I have nothing but praise for Chris and the whole experience!! Thank you. I will be back for the Level 4 in due course. :).

  42. Chris Turner

    Thank you for this great feedback, it was an absolute pleasure working with you and so glad we could get you a certificate out in time!

  43. Chris Turner
