What others have said about Teach Me
“I found the Teach Me course very enjoyable. As it was an e-based course I found that I was able to fit in the work easily with my day to day job with plenty of time to complete. The course information was excellent and easy to access if I needed to check back on anything. I really did find it informative with some interesting subject matter. I have found that I am much more confident when working with young people around financial capability and have taken away some invaluable tools from the course.” Julie Bell, Financial Inclusion Supervisor, Gentoo Group (Sunderland)
“I found the Teach Me course informative and innovative. I liked the online learning, as it gave me the opportunity to work through the modules at my own pace. The information was clear, useful and presented in a user friendly way. I would recommend the Teach Me course to anyone who wants to understand more about financial inclusion.” Heather Wake, East Durham Homes, Senior Employment & Support Officer (Durham)
“I feel that the course will be useful to people looking to gain more experience in financial areas, and to get a good base understanding of the main topics. I have used the learnt material on several occasions already in my day to day work, and personal life; including setting up a pension scheme, advising on illegal lending and APR rates.” Gemma Tilley, Groundwork Leeds, Green Doctor (Leeds)
“I am glad I completed the course as I found it very professionally made with up-to-date information and varied styles of delivery which explained the information clearly. It will be very beneficial in my work with individuals who are reintegrating into life after substance misuse.” Frances Craig, Gray’s Court (joint project with the Boards of Social Witness of the Presbyterian Church and Habinteg Housing Association), Project Worker (Belfast)
