It’s Friday (Wheeey)! And it is nearly Christmas (Wheeeeeeey)! So, for both of those reasons, we are going to keep our final post before Christmas a fun one.
There’s going to be three sections to this post; each designed to do nothing more than put a smile on your face. No link to buy anything, no requesting you to sign up for anything and no encouraging you to like or follow anything. Instead, we just have these three Feelgood Friday topics for you to have a gleg (I know, ‘gleg’ sounds strange and it’s not even a word, but who cares?) through:
Let’s start with the friendly-feedback!
Here’s a small handful of our Facebook reviews…
“Fantastic opportunity to meet great folk from all professions. Learned at my own pace and set class days are very flexible. Great learning experience I can apply daily in my own vocation. Thank you Brooks and Kirk!”
“I would like to thank you all at Brooks and Kirk for the help and motivation to complete my education and training and cava assessor training. I found it very useful to do online in my free time as I could go back to watch the videos over again and help was only a phone call away if I ever needed it.”
“Really enjoying my CAVA course. The online learning platform is so easy to use, and the quality and accessibility of the resources make the assignments much easier to understand. They have exceeded my expectations on feedback times, usually within days rather than the two weeks they give themselves. When I have had questions, the team have always been really helpful and nothing has been too much trouble. They are a great example to assessors as to how to run vocational training!
I will be returning to do my verifier’s qualification with these guys and highly recommend them.
I have finished the qualification now, and it has been excellent. The assessors day was a fantastic opportunity to gain experience completing an observation and professional discussion in a context where the trainee assessors’ needs come first. This means that as the assessor, you feel safe to try things and in asking your trainer questions without worrying about being professional in front of an apprentice and their employer.
This is how all new assessors should be trained as you feel so much more confident at the end of it!
I cannot recommend Brooks and Kirk highly enough! Their service is excellent, the marking is fast and feedback is clear and supportive.
I have talked at length with them on the phone about things like the new apprenticeship standards, which shows they are not just there to help you with the qualification, but are ready and willing to support you in your professional development as a whole.”
Now for some of the feedback we received via email…
“I’m super chuffed and thank you all at Brooks & Kirk for this fine opportunity with the CAVA course. It’s been an amazing experience and have recommended Brooks and Kirk to some friends who are looking to do Assessing”
“Your company had been amazing and I had loved training for you. Thank you for all the support”
“Brooks and Kirk provide an excellent service and support to which I will continue to recommend other too. Hopefully, in the future, I would love to undertake the IV course next”
A Bizarre Nativity
Have you seen any photos online of any bizarre Nativity scenes? Well, we have and we thought we’d share some of the best ones with you! Our personal favourites are;
Now, we all love photos of cute animals, but they get even better (if that’s actually possible) when they have a touch of Christmas!
That’s all for this year! We hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, from all the team at Brooks and Kirk!
