ESOL Learners:

  • 'I have a job that starts on Thursday (March 2024) and I couldn't be happier. It is the first time that I have been offered a job since moving to the UK 15 years ago. I started my English lessons a year ago, I wanted to change my life, I wanted to develop and be independent. I wanted to be an example to my children and be able to help them with their school work. Thanks for the help and support of the teachers and staff. Continuing with my studies, I have changed my life for the better.'

  • 'My teacher is very sweet and respectful'

  • 'I've done a few ESOL courses, I always loved the teachers, and their approach, I felt comfortable and heard.' 

  • 'My teacher is kind. Thank you for all the hard work you have done for us.'

  • 'My teacher is very good, she teaches me English and helps me understand speaking.'

  • 'Every person I have met from Luton Adult Learning is friendly, approachable and has a great depth of knowledge.'

My teacher is patient and I have learnt about how young children can build their self-confidence, social skills, self-control, exploration skills, expand their language and learn numeracy.'

Teaching Assistant Apprentices:

  • 'The learning that I have received has made me more confident with the children and has made me more alert around them.'

Diploma for the Early Years Practitioner Learners:

  • 'Since I started my course I have been noticing my child's development and what is going to affect and influence their development. I helped them to make their weak point stronger.'

For someone who has not studied in a long time, it has been quite a learning curve and I feel I have gained so much knowledge to apply within my own setting! It's a friendly environment to learn with a great teacher that makes learning enjoyable. As a mum with a busy life, it is very handy as learning is flexible around my commitments.'
