TCHC education centre urges more young learners to join Sudbury programme after celebrating milestone
An education provider, designed to help those who have “fallen through the cracks”, has urged more young people around Sudbury to try the scheme out, as the company marked a significant milestone.
TCHC, which opened a branch in Sudbury back in January, staged celebrations on Thursday, in honour of the company’s 15th anniversary since launching, while students also produced articles about the provider using their newly-learned skills.
Currently operating eight programmes around England for young learners aged 16 to 24, it offers a six-month course for a functional skills qualification in English, maths, employability and customer service.
“I have seen a massive difference. There are people who have slipped through the cracks, who come in with low confidence and a lack of motivation, and we have given them a structure and got them to the point where they can pass their exams.
“The social media training has gone beyond my expectations. We have seen a 50% increase in business year on year.”

“I had genuinely believed after being made redundant that the opportunity to build my own academy and curriculum would not come my way again. I had resigned myself that I might have to accept my career would take a step back, given my age and very deflating feelings. The training was of very high quality I learned a lot of valuable knowledge that improved my delivery and curriculum knowledge. It has enabled me to reboot my career and I have found a new role as Head of Technology Training. This type of programme genuinely change people’s lives.”
“My staff are very proud of what they have achieved, especially one member of staff who felt at the beginning that she shouldn’t be on the training, but as a result of the training is more aware of the residents needs and is putting what she has learnt into practice”

I’ve enjoyed the training as we’ve completed it as a group and its always been delivered clearly and friendly. I feel more confident when speaking to clients over the phone and face to face. It’s helped me to deal with tricky customers.”
