"Smart Training Solutions have been delivering courses to educational professionals for over 10 years. We have just launched an Education and Training programme through live online coaching sessions via our online platform. We chose Ann’s resources as they are the best available in the industry. Handouts are detailed, PowerPoints effective and the Award in Education and Training Book bought from Amazon is excellent.
Our first learner has enjoyed his experience and is inspired to continue his learning with the aid of Ann’s materials. We are very pleased and will be launching the Certificate in Education programme in the New Year. Many thanks - you have made our programme very special." Joey Greenwood Owner Smart Training Solutions UK Limited.
"Excellent resources for new and experienced providers, thank you for your attention to detail Ann". Lorna Hunt Kreative Recruitment Ltd
"Thank you for all of the resources you have provided. These will undoubtedly be vital in our aim of training assessors to the highest possible standard." Kieron Chadwick Academy of Assessors
"I find your resources give us confidence and are great for standardisation. Your work is excellent." Carl Thompson Site Energy Services
" I just wanted to thank you for helping with my Certificate in Education and Training. All of your books and resources have helped me immensely." Chris Oakes via LinkedIn
"I've found the resources very useful, and ultimately it's saved me weeks of planning." Rob Makins
"The training resources for the Level 3 Award in Education and Training we received from Ann have simply been fantastic. As a company accredited through TQUK we were eligible for a 50% discount, which for a start up company like ourselves is a huge help. The learning elements are so easy to adapt into your own brand, ensuring you keep the copyright elements as per the instructions.
The information notes that accompany the presentations complement them perfectly, and summarise all lessons well. The real gems I found were the handouts and checklists, which give students or teachers information in a condensed manner, simple tables and lists detailing some of the key elements of the role, whether pre-class planning, during lesson delivery, or post class analysis.
Submitting the presentations to the awarding body was a key test which went seamlessly. Accepting all elements of the learning, and assessment phase immediately. It would be easy to judge the quality of the resources on the time saved on course construction, however the real quality comes in the standard of the materials. I can highly recommend anyone using Ann's resources, and I myself look forward to adding to my courses with more help from Ann." Dave Wilson Occupational Academy
"It has been a pleasure working with Ann and using her wonderful resources. They were all written in a way that was easy to understand and therefore learn from. It has been a very smooth process from the ordering process through to getting the resources. Thanks Ann, it will be wonderful using your resources in my teaching."
Kate Parish Aboutskills Training Ltd
"I cannot thank you enough, your assignments and other resources have saved us MANY, MANY, hours of typing and cross referencing. All received promptly and simple and easy to follow. This was a major up-skill push for us in both assessing and quality assuring. It was a daunting prospect and our chosen A.O. do not hold their own exemplar or sample assignments for most of the units. BRILLIANT resources - keep it up."
Jim and all the team at OATS Charity Employability projects
"Your resources and publications have supported me through my assessment training. I am now an EQA which has enabled me to help develop centres to become outstanding practitioners in assessment and quality assurance of teaching, learning and assessment. Keep up the good work!" Mark Harvey, Educational consultant at MH Consultants
"As a new Lecturer in the TAQA suite of qualifications these resources are invaluable. Ann is a wonderful author who writes in an informative way, the resources are a great source of knowledge used by students and myself equally, helping to direct and inform throughout the programme. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ann’s books and resources to educationalists and students alike." Anon
"I just wanted to complement you on your excellent resources. IQA is such a dry subject and your information is succinct and to the point. I have learned more by purchasing your resources than I have by paying for the course I've taken. I also think that £1.50 is a steal for the amount of information that you get. It is very cheap. Thank you once again. Your resources have been an enormous help!" Emma Newham Emma Newham Fitness
"The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don't tell us what to see". Alexandra K. Trenfor. "Ann's books and resources enable teachers to guide (show) and for student to learn (see). Thank you, your books and resources are of great assistance to both teacher and students alike." Gavin Lumsden BEd (Hons). MSET. QTLS, Essential Teaching Solutions
"Your Assessor materials have given me terrific references and insight for training new assessors and I'm sure the IQA materials will be just as useful." David Martell, Operations Manager, CareerWise Consultancy
"The resources are excellent and will help us to deliver a consistently high standard to our future learners, which will help us achieve our goal of providing consistent, high quality, learner focused qualifications." Clare Powell Censeo Knowledge and Training Ltd
"I enjoy using your resources and love your method of teaching. It has made my delivery enjoyable and most of all I believe the learners achieve a great deal from that." Suna Spry Blingz Hair and Beauty Academy Ltd
"I am really pleased with the ease of use of Ann's website and resource page. Easy to use, user friendly, easy to understand and easy to purchase items and resources. Well done Ann, a nice site and I will be returning for further material." Anon (via Survey Monkey)
"I have found your resources for the Levels 3 & 4 Education and Training invaluable. Your powerpoints are so clear and the resources and handouts have saved me masses of time and stress, so thanks again." Lynne Brayne
"I have been using the resources from Ann Gravells for quite some time now from the Level 3 PTLLS to the Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training, Assessors and IQA. They have proved to be invaluable to my training centre’s resources and are by far the best I have seen on the market yet allowing our assessors and tutors to provide the best learning experience to our students. I will continue to use Ann Gravells as she develops new resources for many more years to come." Paul Buchan, Operations and Training Director BKS Training
"Ann, as always is meticulous in her research on all elements of teaching and learning, as is proved again with the excellent resource pack she has shared with anyone interested in the subject. This is invaluable for someone such as me, leading a busy training centre with added difficulties working overseas in hostile environments, leaving little time for these elements to be covered properly. I really appreciate the way her philanthropic spirit allows her to share freely her wealth of knowledge time and time again."
Mike Palmer, Head of Learning & Development Stirling Group
Stephen Gardiner BSc (Hons) MSSF A Foot Above
"Just wanted you to know I have passed my qualification and your resources were really helpful and relevant to the assessment criteria."
"Wow - the resources are such good quality and so reasonably priced! They have saved me so much time and my learners have found them invaluable in helping them with their qualification. Thank you!"
"Thank you! Your resources were just what I was looking for. They are professionally presented and contain everything needed to help achieve the qualification. They are also excellent value for money."JK
"Here at Effective Solutions Training we utilised the Ann Gravells’ Award in Education resources for our courses. The feedback received from our learners was extremely positive saying how they are user friendly, easy to interpret and understand. I would highly recommend these resources as being efficient and very cost effective. We are now using the resources for the Certificate in Education and Training and fully expect similar learner feedback."
Peter Gillies, Director Effective Solutions Training & Consultancy
"All the resources that Ann produces are fantastic. As teachers, we really appreciate them as they need very few additions to them. The trainee Teachers/Assessors and IQAs love them as they as so well laid out and easy to cross reference to the assessment criteria. We have never known anything as good as this."
Thank you Ann - Absolutely Brilliant!!
Amanda Fletcher, Training and Development Co-ordinator for Offender Learning The Manchester College
"I am an educational consultant and training provider offering tutor, assessor, IQA and EQA qualifications and having researched many resource suppliers to support the delivery of these qualifications, Ann’s was by far head and shoulders above the rest. I was immediately drawn to how easy to read her books were and how user friendly her resources were to implement. Her book ‘Achieving your Assessment and Quality Assurance Units (TAQA) Second Edition’ compliments the assessor, IQA and EQA qualifications perfectly and I recommend this book to all my learners through CB Consultancy and Training.
The feedback from the learners has been fantastic and all have commented on how much the book has helped them, particularly with the knowledge units. They also commented on how useful the many activities are, that are contained within the book, as it enables this resource to act more of a manual rather than a traditional book.
I have no hesitation in recommending Ann’s resources to educational professionals and I will continue to use them alongside the qualifications that I offer." Carl Bromilow CB Consultancy and Training
"Your materials have been fundamental in our ability to change from offering PTLLS to AET.
It saved me many, many hours of development and I just knew it would all meet the requirements of NOCN."
David Lacey, Lead Tutor & Quality Assurance Co-ordinator Learning and Innovation Exeter CVS
