As A-Level results and clearing become hot topics, you might be wondering what options are available. We’re taking a look at the benefits of training, and the steps you can take if your plans don’t involve university.
Finding out you haven’t got into university, or if university just isn’t on your radar, it doesn’t have to mean bad news. For one thing, you’ve avoided the pressure of astronomical student loan repayments (the BBC recently estimated student debt to be over £50k*) which most people spend their working life repaying. And rather than pouring over books for 3 years, you can spend this time accruing the experience and practical knowledge that employers are looking for.
The reality of the job market is that employers aren’t always looking for candidates with a degree; it just doesn’t hold the brevity in the workplace that it once did. More employers are looking to experienced candidates to fill roles, as practical knowledge trumps university**.
Why is this? More often than not, when recruiting, employers are looking for a ‘quick win’. It can be costly to businesses to invest time in training, so some look for the ‘instant win’ - a candidate with the practical, working knowledge and experience to get instantly stuck in to working life.
In an average lifetime we spend a total of 12 years working*** – scary huh?! With all that time taken up in the workplace, surely you’d want to spend your working days doing something you actually enjoy?
If you do what you love, you’ll love what you do.
Killing it in the gym? Thought about becoming a Personal Trainer? Passionate about helping people? Have you thought about a career in social care? Eyebrows and mani on point? Beauty therapy could be for you! Love all things technical? Why not pursue a career in IT?
We have a variety of training courses available to help you master the skills you need to get noticed by employers, without going to university. We provide qualifications that help you stand out from the crowd – from becoming a Level 4 Personal Trainer in little more than 4 months, to qualifying as a Web Developer in 3 months, there’s a course to suit your career objectives in a timeframe that rivals going to uni.
Unlike traditional higher education routes, we’re not going to get you qualified and leave you high and dry. Our dedicated team are on hand from the moment you enrol to help you polish your CV, and match you with our leading corporate partners who have jobs ready and waiting for our graduates. We also have funding options, because we believe financial constraints shouldn’t stop you achieving something amazing.

Perfect helpful and attentive
I have been very impressed from the very beginning when I saw the advert online. I received information about my Teaching Assistant course very quickly. My tutor was quick to help when required and I’ve had regular contact with my career guide. Everybody is very helpful and professional and I’m really enjoying my course.

Steeve Devine is extremely helpful. Before doing the course I was little bit worried about my age, but Steeve Devine reassured me and encourage me a lots. The way he went through the course with me, it make it sound so easy and give you so much love to do it. I have to say without Steeve help me may be I will still hesitate to do the course. Who ever come across talking to him over the phone are very lucky and 100% they'll get the best advice.
Thank you Steeve Devine for helping me and give me the strength to persuade my dream.

Staff are absolutely brilliant couldn't ask for better customer service. They are straight up with you and extremely polite. Would reccomend to anybody
I had heard good things about TTR before starting my course (L3 Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools) but it could not prepare me for the true level of excellence in the support they have provided so far. It has been, for all intensive purposes, faultless, besides a few typos in the resource documents. But hey nobody's perfect. Regardless, everything you need to aquire the qualification is provided and the support you receive from a professional tutor who has spent time working in the education sector is of great comfort.
A Big shout out to Jo-Ann for her expert personal tuition and insights into life as a TA.
Laura for guiding me through the initial sign up process with true professionalism and finesse.
By the end I'm sure I'll also be thanking Megan in the careers department for helping secure my first placement and eventually full time employment.
Such a pleasure and I would recommend this avenue of learning to anyone wanting to switch careers or just to learn something new with a qualification and job prospect at the finish line.
To all at The Training Room, I salute you!

They have an excellent team, I was able to book an appointment with ease and had the telephone consultation on the allotted date and time that it was booked. They were able to answer all my questions and have been very supportive and professional. I am very happy to be studying with them and they are there to help if I need anything.
