Learner Testimonials

At n-ergy, we are passionate advocates of giving ex-offenders a second chance.  Our over-arching aim is to ensure that all n-ergy’s learners achieve a qualification that meets both their personal learning objectives and employment goals on release.

We are therefore delighted that our provision is receiving consistent positive feedback from our learners, who complete Learner Exit Interview Forms on completion of their qualification. It is especially rewarding also to receive personally written testimonials from learners about their learner journey and the praise given to n-ergy’s Assessors who all go the extra mile every day to support our learners.
