“…the majority of our students come from some sort of economic or social disadvantage, and the “soft” skills you are teaching in this programme are exactly what they need in order to progress in life.”

Shoonagh Hubble, Head of Careers and Higher Education, Barton Peveril Sixth Form College, Eastleigh, Hampshire

“Our students who have accessed the courses have found them to be extremely beneficial and were very grateful to be given the opportunity to work through such a unique platform. As a school, your free access has meant we have been able to support our students much more effectively with progression and work experience skills.”

Dr. Nikky Hammond, Acting Assistant Principal and Head of Physics, Tomlinscote School, Surrey

“We have had some very positive feedback, particularly from our Year 11 students, about the EtonX course that we secured them access to. Thank you! I have had a lot of Year 11 students tell me how useful they have found the Resilience course and how much they feel it has helped them look at themselves and think about how they approach things.”

Kitty Malborough, Raising Standards Leader post-15, Longfield Academy (Kent)
