Starting your own Business is a major strength, with 100% achieving the qualification with 68% of clients removing themselves from long term unemployment.

Our results speak for themselves – just listen to what some of our clients have to say:-


Door Supervisors

"Fantastic Tutor, fantastic support.... I can't thank you enough!"


Personal Development and Employability

 "Ok you win!  Yes I've been on other courses but nothing like this?  I've finally got my mojo back and look forward to starting work next week"

Numeracy & Literacy
“I am extremely grateful for the time and help Rob has given me.  I never bothered at school and over the years realised that my lack of numeracy and literacy skills were holding me back.  Learning new skills has helped build my confidence and I now feel optimistic about the future”

Information Technology
“I never thought I would be able to use a computer, let alone have the confidence to now do my household accounts on it – thank you!”

Customer Service
“understanding the reason for procedures and that there is a right way to do everything is only part of what I have learnt during this course.  I thought I knew all there was to know about customer service – how wrong can you be…  Great course, great people and only sad it is finished."


Starting Your Own Business
”I have learnt lots…. There is much food for thought, very helpful and professional and informative.  I would recommend to anyone who is in business to come along”.

“well structured sessions – everyone is included without feeling under pressure – would recommend anyone thinking about going self employed to attend the course”



Building Better Opportunities Programme (BBO) 

Building Better Opportunities (BBO) programme in York, North Yorkshire and the East Riding, is a partnership between Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund, which is part of the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) Growth Programme 2014 to 2020.  We  were part of the only proposal to get through and are extremely excited to work with Your Consortium and partners over the next 3 years.

The project aims to support 2,000 individuals who are the furthest from the labour market and at most risk of social exclusion, supporting people with a wide range of barriers including health, social, skills and economic/financial barriers. This will include participants with criminal records, those with caring responsibilities, lone parents, returners to the labour market, older workers, forces and ex-forces families, victims of domestic abuse, care leavers and a small number of people from BAME communities.
