Some Testimonials

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to write a testimonial.

Stripey Jumper says… “Jules has an infectious enthusiasm that coaxes the most reluctant and introverted learners to engage fully with those around them. A perceptive, insightful mind and an intuitive empathy for the individual learner's requirements allow her to convey targeted delivery of student support. Jules' clients are nurtured through a carefully planned, systematic training process, that first highlights the learner's needs, then encourages and supports the client in developing their own solutions to the problems faced in the employment market.

Jules' keen intelligence is only eclipsed by her razor sharp wit, capturing the assembled audience in mesmeric tutelage. Jules' knowledge, dedication and drive are second to none, the awards she has received speak for themselves – Jules' talents are unsurpassed.

Anon from Hove says… “Unfortunately for me, I have been out of work for some time, and have been sent on a number of mandatory courses. (This was a mandatory referral from Job Centre Plus) Literally every one has been wholly without value, except this one, which was practical, insightful, and generally gave the impression of someone actually trying to think about us and analyse our needs, rather than just working through a pre-determined syllabus.”

Pauline King from Worthing says… “In all truth, I was dreading this course. Being in the entertainment industry as an actor/ singer, I was fully expecting to feel like a square peg in a round corporate box-ticking hole. Whilst a lot of the course indeed did not cater to my requirements, Jules, with her wealth of experience in the performing arts, tweaked the course as much as she could in order to accommodate my needs.I am most grateful for the understanding and humour – she made what could have been a ghastly situation human!”

I will certainly smile when I see what she considers as “swear words” because I do now know it will definitely make me think to avoid them in the future.”
