Every now and then, a graduating student writes a Review that we believe really captures what we try to do. Instead of them ending up hidden among the others, we will share them with you, and try to explain why we think they are so appropriate.
Ian: What did he say?
Professional Company with empathic staff.
Very comprehensive web based RPL assessment, which provided a diversity of evidentiary options suiting my position and experience. At all times I was confident that appropriate standards were being maintained in respect to the Units of study. Having now graduated, I am confident of carrying the enhanced learning back into the workplace.
Processing of all submitted work was excellent in timeline (1-2 days) and any further requirements were always clearly explained.
Excellent Tutor/Assessor relationship throughout the Course, made for ‘easy’ discussion environment; always encouraged and recognised for the work undertaken.
No hesitation in recommending Fortress Learning for those wishing to reach ‘the standard’ required for professional application.
Why did this particular testimonial comment get our attention?
Ian’s comment highlights a couple of things that Fortress Learning prioritises:
- making each student’s course as efficient and with the least number of hoops to jump as possible
- upholding ‘the standard’
So that we can minimize the number of obstacles you need to navigate to complete your qualification, we take a holistic view of the work you’ve already done, the skills you already possess, and the stuff you already know. As Ian says, Fortress “provides a diversity of evidentiary options suiting [your] position and experience.” We want to recognize what you can do and know; we do not wish for you to trudge through tasks that are redundant. And so, we provide a flexible Recognition process.
Fortress takes our role as a training provider seriously. If we say that you are competent, we say it confidently and with the certainty that the skills and knowledge you possess will be evident in the work you do in your field.
But – sometimes, this clashes with what students want. Often, students come to us wanting the Certificate – with the least amount of hassle and time. We understand this and we will support our students all the way. But – our want is not exactly the same. We want for you to be competent and confident in your job. It’s our job to determine this about you.
And so, the issuing of a Fortress Learning Certificate isn’t just about that piece of paper; it’s about what it represents about you and about us – that, in achieving a qualification from Fortress Learning, you, like Ian, are “confident of carrying the enhanced learning back into the workplace.”
