Feedback from our Trainees:

“Going on the ATE Training Course was easily the best decision I have made for myself, possibly ever. I learned new things every day, both about how to actually do the job of being a Monitor, and about myself too.”
Trainee

“ATE is all about joining in and being yourself, and I promise to anyone who does the training course that they will not feel judged, embarrassed or alone.”

Trainee

“Everything that I learnt from ATE on the training course are skills that I will use whatever I do in life.”

Trainee

“It helps you build countless skills on how to look after children”

Trainee

“I initially approached the course with apprehension, thinking it would be a week of health and safety coupled with rigid memorisation of rules, but this could not have been further from the truth. The training is extremely interactive and action packed.”

Trainee

“By the end of day two it felt like we’d known each other forever. Stepping away from the real world and into the ‘bubble’ that was made by the staff was really easy”

Trainee

“There was no pressure, so you felt able to get involved without feeling like you would be judged.”
