What the teachers have to say....
"As part of Cramlington Learning Village we have an alternative curriculum cohort who are at risk of either permanent exclusion or of not achieving 5 A*-C GCSE grades whilst at School. Mark and John at Oak Training worked with our young people on a week’s long Wider Key Skills level 1 course and every student completed the entire qualification by the end of the week. I have been so impressed with the professionalism and dedication of the people at Oak Training that I give my full recommendation to any School who is thinking about how to ensure these disengaged students still achieve qualifications they can use in the future. I have also booked Mark and his team to come back to work with the same students in order to achieve the Level 2 Course.
Oak Training produces the quality and expertise that many Schools need at a very affordable price."
Thanks for you support,

“I booked Oak Training after a colleague recommended them to me. They exceeded all my expectations and ensured my young people achieved 100%. They kept me involved by daily written reports and a final evaluation”
