What do our previous students think?


“Very good overall, all the instructors were very helpful, they all come across like they want to teach! Progressed very well, with great theory knowledge thanks to tools and online ‘smart-screen’. Good practical, thanks to the tutors and plenty of tasks that kept me on the ball!”  - Level 2 Plumbing. 


Course was very intense, Ben was a fantastic tutor with a great knowledge of the industry. Upon arrival, I could not see myself getting through it, but due to Ben’s teaching methods my confidence grew rapidly and by the end of the 6 weeks I felt competent to go out into the real world and start plumbing. Thanks Ben!.” - Level 2 Plumbing. 


“A very well organised and professional environment. Excellent facilities and extremely knowledgeable tutor on the 6035 level 2 plumbing course. Great value for money. Just the right level of difficulty and challenge.” - Level 2 Plumbing.
