“The service I received and the training I received was the best I’d had in years. They made the whole process easy and it wasn’t difficult to ask for help when needed. Gerry is a great trainer, and all the staff were friendly & helped at all times.”
“Training @ Key provided an adult learning environment with non-judgemental teaching. They take the time to explain things to me which makes me want to attend.”
“I think they are doing a great job. They are providing for my needs and they are there to help us. It’s nice to have some support without feeling afraid; they are very reassuring. I feel looked after and respected, and they allow support, but don’t take away your dignity.”
“Before becoming a client of Key Employment I had tried to get a job part time. My friends were all getting jobs, but I wasn’t able to get one. I also found trying to apply for jobs on the internet hard because I am dyslexic. Thanks to Key Employment I am now employed as a kitchen hand.”
“I found the course to be interesting and have learnt a lot about animals. It has pointed me in the direction of my future which is looking brighter. I met new friends and highly enjoyed the trips we went on. I also loved the teacher; she is beautiful.”
