Feedback from Employers
Anstruther Hair & Beauty
(Hair & Beauty salon in Reigate)
‘Without our Apprentices the salon could not function at the high level of efficiency and customer service that we strive for. They play a vital role in our business and they combine the skills they learn at East Surrey College with their salon training to complement and enhance the services we offer.’
Leigh Anstruther, Director
(Supplier of technology and services to the UK’s Aerospace, Defence, Security and Transportation sectors)
"We have 3 apprentices currently studying at East Surrey College, with a further 8 due to join later this month. They are all working towards either a Level 3 BTEC or Level 4 HNC in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
I have been very impressed with the service and support provided by the college from day one. They have been accessible, flexible and accommodating, and are always at the end of the phone to answer any questions or provide additional support. Apprenticeships can be quite a minefield for an employer, but the college have made the process very straightforward and have invested a lot of time in making sure that we match the apprentices to the most appropriate framework.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the engineering department of East Surrey College and hope to continue working with them for our apprenticeships over the coming years."
Nicola Todd, Emerging Talent Partner, Thales UK
Cavendish Care Home
(150 staff members across 6 supported living homes and 6 residential homes)
‘We currently have 6 staff studying for their diplomas, although around 15 staff in total have completed their diplomas with East Surrey College.
We have a good working relationship with the College and they really encourage our staff through their qualification in a supportive and professional manner.
We intend to continue training our staff through the College and want to continue with the positive relationship.’
Sue Kemp, Training Manager
(Specialist retail consultants offering business expansion through garden centre concession stands)
‘As we were new to the apprentice scheme, we were totally in the hands of the assessor and his team. We are very pleased with this outcome and look forward to continuing our relationship with East Surrey College.’
Ian Silverton, Director
(Retailers of car, bicycle, camping and travel items)
‘I recommended my staff to enrol on the Team Leadership course because Halfords don’t currently offer anything formal, only in-house training. It's been great for staff members to build confidence and invest in new ways of working.
I personally completed the Management Level 3 course to enhance my own knowledge in management. I wanted to confirm that what I was doing was right - in line with the retail sector.
I would definitely recommend the course to my staff. The process was really easy, simple, and didn’t take them off the day job too much as it was all on-the-job and in-house.’
Trish Whitehorn, Store Manager
Reigate and Banstead Borough Council, Earlswood Depot
(With the help of East Surrey College the council started a Vehicle Maintenance Apprenticeship position at their Earlswood Depot. They have since employed their Apprentice Jake Hanmer on a permanent contract, and have signed up another Apprentice through the College.)
‘By taking Jake on as an Apprentice we have been able to tailor his training to suit the company. He has continuously approached his work with a good attitude and willingness to learn and we feel he will be a brilliant role model for future Apprentices’
Ken Dodds, Fleet Manager
