Working with Primary Goal has been very good for me. They have a great training team with industry experienced trainers, complete with a set of useful and industry relevant exams, meaning I was obtaining good knowledge from people who have the background to effectively deliver it. In terms of the advise and supervision that I received when it came to both the exams and also writing my portfolio and the other apprenticeship tasks, all the people who I have worked with in Primary Goal, worked extremely hard and gave me a lot of attention to make sure I was on top of everything. They were always available when I needed advise and gave me regular meetings where we could review my work and set goals to improve it. They all have worked tirelessly and played an absolutely huge part in getting me through my level 3 and 4 apprenticeships. Not only that but they have helped with job finding, assisting in finding me the placement which I am working at to this day.
