What do our learners and trainers say

I would like to express how pleased I am with Babington. I cannot fault the support and guidance that I have received from my skills coach and other Babington staff. They are all very responsive to questions and have been there to offer me advice, encouragement, and reassurance whenever I have needed it. I am so glad that I chose this provider to do my CIPD level 5 apprenticeship, as I am not sure I would have been able to get through this course without them



HR Level 5

I think my tutors have been brilliant and it has been very clear that they are there for me, every step of the way. I feel supported by them



Learning and Development Level 3

The expertise of my Skills Coach and Specialist Trainers mean I am fully supported and stretched and challenged, bringing great satisfaction to my learning
