Arthur Solse Sowah – Managing Director Future In Growth

Success with Advice and GuidanceAfter completing his Level 4 Advice and Guidance course Arthur set up his own  Charitable Organisation supporting those hardest to reach in the Community. His Charitable organisation is going from strength to strength and is now delivering support programmes for DWP.

“I have found this course simply amazing and an eye opener into the many aspects of everyday situations that surround us. The reason why I took on this course was to better  help the people around me, weather family, friends or the general public. I realised that taking on the course, would advance my understanding in situations that I myself have been in and to acknowledge current and future  steps needed in order to achieve my goals and duties.
The Course itself is laid out very meticulously, involving case studies and genuine examples of cognitive nature. The Course is designed to make you first look inside yourself and then to assess and identify the need of others around you. The Course Tutor that was assigned to me was great with her genuine  personality. She  is very professional and understanding. The art of listening and developing the candidate with proficient guidelines is excellent, also advocating without being overpowering is ideal in making you believe in your own capabilities and use of own initiative.

I have enjoyed this course and the knowledge that I have been empowered with. I now aim to complete my Level 6

I will put these new found skills into effective use weather in employment or for general circumstances.”

However  my tutor then explained what the qualification was all about , highlighted how I perform in my role and  helped me focus on developing good practice and then I was off! I enjoyed my qualification so much it has given me the confidence to now move onto a second qualification. Thank you so much.”

“I have really enjoyed this course. It was very informative. It really opened up various avenues that will assist me when dealing with all individuals fairly regardless of race, ethnicity, language etc. The class sections I had were well balanced so that it covered all the units I chose at the start. The materials provided for the course were also very well detailed so it mad my understanding easier. I will recommend this course to anyone who shows an interest or anyone I feel will benefit from the course.

Anne the trainer was fantastic. She did a great job explaining things. I found myself leaving sections with a significantly better understanding of the material. By answering all questions I had thoroughly, I was able to better understand topics that had previously confused me. She constantly maintained an aura of authority on the subject, which made the learning experience all the more engaging and productive, because I felt that she had something valuable to offer and I could readily learn from her. Any learner that is assigned to Anne is very lucky because she is an excellent trainer.”
