  • Training with Bright was the best decision i have ever made to progress my Career. My mentor was incredibly helpful and was there 24/7. I have completed another course with Bright since completing the A1 Award and have recommended them to several of my friends

  • For me, training with Bright was a very helpful step to my career. The practical assignments were the best part and my two learners were very approachable. The provided realistic challenge to me as an emerging assessor and i would just like to say a big thank you to them both. My mentor was really efficient. He was very organised so whenever I needed feedback or help, he would be there. I certainly enjoyed my self with Bright.
