Three Work Ready Learners




Martin Downey

Over the past 24 weeks I’ve been studying at Tydfil Training obtaining qualifications in Health & Safety Level 2, First Aid Level 2 and Manual Handling Level 2.

I’ve started ICT and progressed through to ECDL Level 1 gaining knowledge via the tutors, who have been brilliant in giving me confidence in boosting my skills.  I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time there and would highly recommend anyone to go for training and to increase your skills and knowledge.

With my qualifications gained, I hope to further myself in job searching and gain a career.

Catherine Roberts

I really enjoyed my time at Tydfil Training.   I gained certificates in subjects I never thought I would and would never thought of taking.  It will really help with my confidence when applying for jobs knowing that my computer knowledge has been increased so much. I am very thankful for all the help and encouragement received.

Carol Smith

When I first came to Tydfil Training I was worried how I would cope with certain skills, but as the weeks went on I gained confidence.  It helped me progress quickly, I had great tutors that took time and patience with me and the experience of learning in Tydfil Training was fantastic. I feel honoured and privileged to have taken part and it just goes to show what you can do when you put your mind to it.

Work Coach, JCP Merthyr –  “These are just a few comments from some of my customers but I’d like to add that the majority of customers who engaged with Tydfil Training provision have spoken very highly of all the Tutors, course content and respect they have received during their time on provision”


“Support from the Tutors has been brilliant in everything I’ve done. They’ve been flexible to my needs and my computer skills have really improved. Tara is my trainer at the moment (Pathways to Care) and the ways she presents the course has made it really easy to learn and it’s been fun. As students we have supported and encouraged each other. I highly recommend this course”


“ I claimed JSA after a long period of ESA so when I first went to Work Ready, I couldn’t switch a computer on and was afraid of the mouse! WR and my Tutor offered me the support I needed, not just to improve my computer skills but my self confidence as well and I was surprised to find there was so much out there. Because of my health condition I found some days a challenge, this was when I really appreciated the moral support from my friends on the course…they kept me going. WR was the start I needed on a different type of benefit”


“Since starting Work Ready, I’m surprised how far my skills have improved. I never thought I’d have a use for or be interested in computers but it’s been great to have had the support to take me through to ECDL and gain a pass mark of 92%”


“ I was on 50+IT.  It was great to go somewhere the tutors had the patience to explain and support me through the computer course. I really enjoyed all the other bits like First Aid and the people like CAB who came to talk to my group”


“When I claimed JSA I had no idea how important being able to use the computer would be so when my Coach suggested I meet with Tydfil Training, I had no idea what to expect. With the support of my Tutors, I can now confidently use computers and have got qualifications too.  I had the opportunity to do a CSCS course and I have started a voluntary placement as well, which I really enjoy and this will help to fill a gap on my CV. Work Ready has been a great course”

Food Hygiene Course hits the mark for Greenfield School

Greenfields-School-MerthyrFollowing the recent delivery of our CIEH Food Hygiene Course for staff at Greenfield School in Merthyr Tydfil, we received the following message:

“I Just wanted to say a big thank you from staff as they said the training was fantastic. They really enjoyed the day and wanted to pass on their thanks.”

Greenfield School, Pentrebach, Merthyr Tydfil

Many Many Thanks!

I studied at Tydfil Training for 3 months during 2010 at your Bridgend Training martyn popeCentre. While there, you afforded me the chance to complete my driving test and qualifications. Since then I’ve passed my driving test during the summer, bought a van and advertised for gardening work. I now have my own business (I’m actually turning work down this year!) and currently studying Level 3 Horticulture at Pencoed.

Many many thanks – without the opportunities offered to me through Tydfil Training, I would not be where I am now – which is great!

“Thank you! as you helped me save someone’s life today”

Dear Tydfil Training,

The First Aid course was amazing!!! We couldn’t of had a better instructor!

As I left the course and got to the bottom of the street, an elderly lady who was in her 80’s had tripped and landed on her face!

She was bleeding very badly, so I ran over to help her and if it wasn’t for the training I had JUST RECEIVED, god knows what may of happened.

But I stayed with her until the ambulance arrived and took her to hospital and was told that I had “done a good job.”

Please can you forward this email on to the instructor for me, as I just wanted to say “Thank you!, as you helped me save someone’s life today”

Kind regards,

Rebecca (Office Manager)

Finding & Getting a Job

through Capital Training. I have learned how to present my CV to an employer and how to write an effective cover letter to accompany it. I could not have achieved this without the help from my Tutor

Thank-You! Tydfil Training

I have enjoyed myself at Tydfil Training a lot.  The staff have been a great help and full of support in gettingWAG me four certificates within the last 3 months of being there. I have got ECDL 1 & 2, a First Aid Certificate and a Health & Safety Certificate, the most I’ve ever got in such a short time on any course I’ve ever been on. The other colleagues/friends there have helped and supported each other a lot. It’s been a very good atmosphere to do training in, as there is a good feel about the place with loads of encouragement. A big difference to other training providers I’ve been with.
Paul T Harrison from RCT

Thanks for all your support!

I would like to thank you and all your staff at Tydfil Training for all the support and training that you have provided during my time with you.  Staff are very friendly, helpful and informative and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with you.

New ESF Logo websiteI have attended other courses with different providers but none have been as efficient as Tydfil Training, providing me with help and support to gain qualifications in IT (ECDL Level 1 and 2) and  I’ve also gained certificates in Health & Safety and First Aid in the Workplace.

I feel that I now have a better chance of finding a place in the workforce due to all the help and support I have been given, so thank you Tydfil Training for giving me that chance!

I now feel “Work Ready”

I have come to the end of a 15 week training programme at Tydfil Training that included a 6 week “Work New ESF Logo websiteReady” Programme where I was given amazing help to make my CV look smart and professional. Since my tutor’s help, I have had at least one reply a week which is a huge change to one a month, plus two interviews, where my last interview was two years ago. During the first 6 weeks I also obtained both Level 2 Health & Safety and Level 2 First-Aid at Work qualifications which has really given a boost to my CV.

After the first 6 weeks, I was offered the chance to move onto an ECDL qualification where my tutor helped me greatly in achieving both Level 1 and Level 2. This is exactly what I needed to help me enter the Admin industry.

I have been a customer of TTC twice before in the past and have to say, no other training provider gives you as much help as them. The entire staff at the centre are very very friendly.

Other providers I have attended had a strict attitude towards clients and it always felt like you were just a number for them. This is not the case at TTC at all.

I would like to thank everyone for their kind help and making me feel welcome. I feel I now have the right skills and attitude to get me into work.
