What our customers say…

I was very happy with the assessment centre and the service provided by BBE Training. I was made to feel very welcome and the surroundings were perfect for sitting my assessment.

- Stefanie

The induction I felt was very valuable as my tutor gave some excellent insights as to what to expect throughout the course.

She guided me step by step through each Unit giving through explanations and examples. Which was very useful!

I feel her guidance and support will help me to achieve my qualification. I will look forward to working with my tutor whilst I complete my qualification. She has a lot of knowledge and experience, I certainly can learn a lot from her.

It was a pleasure to meet her.
