Some quotes from existing learners:

“When I first started I had never touched a computer; now I use it to send my CV and fill in job application forms online.”

“ABE has helped me cope with the paperwork I need for my job. My supervisor has commented on the improvement in my writing and spelling when I hand in residents’ care plans.”

“I used to be hopeless with numbers but now I can work out the best deals for gas, electricity and offers in the supermarkets.  If only my old maths teacher could see me now!”

“I never thought I would ever have qualifications, but I do now, thanks to ABE. It has given me the confidence to look for a better job!”
