Award in Education and Training (AET formerly known as PTLLS), Wigan, November 2017

‘Having been in the ‘teaching arena’ and being self taught and learnt from peers I openly admitted I had some pre conceived ideas about how it would go ….. yep, that was way off base!! Neil was excellent and built it steadily through the week with a manageable pace. Even with homework I really enjoyed the course (30+ years since doing anything marginally academic so it was a bit of a culture shock!) Great fun and learnt loads. Can’t ask for anything else. Thanks.’

“Absolutely brilliant learning experience, assignments were marked in an extremely timely manner with the appropriate critique. All correspondence with my tutor was professional and extremely helpful within the learning environment. I am hoping to use the same company to complete the diploma in education which they provide. All in all I would recommend them to anyone who wants to complete a course in education.”

Award in Education and Training (AET formerly known as PTLLS), Coulport, October 2017

‘Very enjoyable course. The instructor Neil has a laid back approach but is extremely knowledgeable on all aspects and techniques. I am very aware now of various teaching styles that will vastly improve my subject delivery and feedback.’

‘The course was well organised and detailed. I felt that due to Grahams former occupation he was able to provide more credibility and relate examples to a room full of firearms officers.’


Award in Education and Training (AET formerly known as PTLLS), London, November 2016

‘The online material was well put together and allowed straightforward cross referencing to recap key points.’

‘Very good course and excellent trainer in Graham!’

Award in Education and Training (AET formerly known as PTLLS), Manchester, June 2016

Level 4 Certificate in Education and Training (CET) programme

‘From start to finish I have found Maxam Training to be the most professional company I have used for an external qualification.’

‘Great working with Graham, thank you so much for your advice and support.’

‘Overall I enjoyed the course, I felt a sense of achievement once I had completed it, I had no issues re the course.’

‘The course has an ‘easy to follow’ design, which gives the student more than enough time to prepare and complete each separate module. The material provided was more than adequate to set you upon your path whilst still having a requirement for research to be carried out. In truth I found it easier to speak to my online tutor compared to the one that I had nominated. Overall an enjoyable course, thank you. I have already recommended you to others.’

‘Very pleased with the support provided. Helpful, responsive & friendly.’


Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training (DET) programme

‘Having completed several courses with Maxam Training I feel that the course structure and content has been brilliant, the support and guidance which I have received has been second to none. Thank you so much…’


Distance/online learning courses

‘The course was good and I have learnt a lot from it’

‘Fantastic service, thank you very much for your help over the last week. Just another reason why we actively refer you to students and tutors.’

‘Excellent course content and structure. All feedback was timely and constructive.’

‘I thought this course was great. doing it online meant I could complete bits whenever I had the time and my work was always marked in a timely and approachable fashion. tutors were lovely too.’

‘As a new online learner, I was not very confident at first but that quickly changed when I realised how simple the layout of everything was. I enjoyed my course.’

‘Graham was always available to answer any of my questions, even when he was busy he would respond and get back to me when he could.’

‘The course seems very well designed for those with quick and easy access to the internet. It has a straightforward and easy to follow system.’

‘I found the online site very easy to access and use. Instructions were precise and the Maxam training staff were always extremely helpful. My assignments were always quickly marked and returned with valuable feedback. The course material was very good but it also required further research of books and the internet to achieve the required standard (which is a good way to ensure the students fully research their assignment subjects). The venue and organisation surrounding the 20 minute presentation was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend Maxam training to anyone thinking of seeking an award in education course.’

‘This was an excellent course and I would highly recommend it. I am from a law enforcement background and have no recognised teaching qualifications. However, I was able to study the on-line training package in my own time and found it very easy to follow. The course content was pitched at just the right level and was very informative. Graham and Shona were always available to answer any questions I had in a prompt manner. I would recommend this online course to anybody who like myself, cannot commit to the 5 day attendance course due to work commitments.’

‘Great support throughout. The micro-teach session was fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed the course.’

‘I didn’t realise that distance learning could be this easy’

‘My course Tutor was always available if needed and I received as much help and support as I required throughout the process.’
