Every Learner is Different | Betsy’s Story
After 10+ years of experience in Early Years, it was time for Betsy to enter a familiar yet exciting new industry.
Life before Brooks and Kirk
Well, I work in the early year sectors, so I think I’ve been working in the early status for over 10 years.
Finding Brooks and Kirk
I think it was last year in June that I start looking for the… I think it’s around May – last year I start looking for an assessor course because I wanted to be a qualified assessor. And then I found Brooks and Kirk and I talked to Dan, and then I immediately joined the course.
My former employer asked me to work on the Level 3 Assessing Course, and I just typed it online. And then I did find a lot of results regarding training providers and the price range was huge. So some of them only cost me, I think about £90. And then there are some like £200, like £150. However, when I looked up Brooks and Kirk’s website, the information is really comprehensive.
“So I would say the course, how do you say? The course resources are quite comprehensive. It comes with videos and sometimes PowerPoint slices. I will always get feedback from the assessor within a few days. Their feedback is really valuable for me to pass the criteria. They encouraged me a lot.”
Betsy said she would recommend us 10/10.
“Compared to the others, it’s not cheap. But I believe it’s all worth it because they (Brooks and Kirk) are really supportive. Because every time when I called the hotline helpline, there was always somebody to pick up my phone. I have nothing to complain about. You have a great team”
