Barrett Bell don’t just stop once the course is finished. It’s not like you’re out the door and that’s it, they ask how we’re doing, and keep in contact. Even after three years, I’m still in contact with them as they help me progress through my career.

What's it like to learn with us?

We don’t believe in herding big numbers through the door. We keep classes small. So you get the hands on support you need, when you need it.

And you’ll find we always go the extra mile. From English and Maths support (if you want them), to out of hours support, Whatsapp groups, and materials designed for every learning style. Everything is designed around you.

Students often come to us from other courses telling us no other training centre incorporates job seekers skills like we do. After all, what good is a qualification if you don’t have evidence or the employability training to back it up?

Our learners tell us it’s this encouragement and ‘in the trenches’ support that got them where they are today.

Our training is consistently rated ‘Excellent’ by learners, and over 84% go into work on completion of the course.

In a nutshell, we are a family business that genuinely cares and our teachers are there to support you every step of the way.

I’ve always felt very supported at Barrett Bell, while I was learning and since I’ve moved on. Their whole ethos is about getting people into work… and it’s true.

It was a fantastic course and I learned more in 15 weeks then in five years of high school.
