"I have enjoyed my meetings with Danielle, they have been very good and i have learnt a lot in the last few months."
"Whilst I was at CMS I completed work placement with them. Through this I gained a lot of office skills and knowledge. I also completed a Level 2 Certificate in Business Administration and Customer Service. I really enjoyed my time at CMS and gained a lot of experience and help. My tutor Alison was very supportive."
"I came to CMS to try and get some qualifications and try to figure out what I would like to do for a job. My time learning at CMS has been really good. I got the qualifications I wanted and I got a job by the end of the course. All the staff here are kind, encouraging and will help you. My tutor, Bex, has been a huge help and very supportive while I have been here."
"We are delighted to say that your training has proven to be different. Your trainers talked to me before they talked to my staff to establish the needs of the company. Your trainers took note of what we needed and then went further by ensuring that my staff had the prerequisite knowledge, ability and desire to achieve what was going to be asked of them.
The training was focused on the needs of this company; consequently to complete the training my staff had to become more involved in what we do and more importantly, why we do what we do. As a result of this involvement some of our systems have now changed for the better. In addition, the staff have developed a greater depth of knowledge about our systems, making implementation easier. "
"Given that our new apprentice has been such a success we are looking to acquire a second apprentice."
