What do our learners and trainers have to say

Having worked in the industry of Regulatory Compliance for over 30 years, aspects of my role involved some delivery of training, so it felt natural to transition into training new Regulatory Compliance Officers. It is rewarding to see their confidence grow during the procession of the apprenticeship and within their role. I have been working with Babington for over two years, I can honestly say that I enjoy every day, even with its challenges.

I have a real passion for helping others develop. This led me to move into the education and training sector. I have been working with Babington for over four years, and love the teamwork that goes in to help each individual student reach their full potential. I have a real passion for creating engaging and immersive learning environments and it’s so gratifying when that helps our apprentices advance. I truly believe that Babington strive to develop better futures and feel lucky to be able to play a part

I'd like to thank all of the trainers who have helped me achieve this, I didn't think I'd be able to continue at one point but with the help, guidance, care and support I was able to reach my goal of being qualified and I hope all learners have the same experience I have to know that it's okay not to get it the first time it's about asking for the support which you know you'll get. Thank you again to everyone that contributed to the success of finishing my course.
