At n-ergy, we are passionate advocates of giving ex-offenders a second chance. It is especially rewarding for us to receive personally written testimonials from learners who have learnt new skills and completed a qualification whilst in custody with the help and guidance from our team of regional assessors and view positive comments from our learners in their Learner Exit Interview forms on completion of their qualifications.
Here are as a selection of learner testimonials and success stories we would like to share with you:
