C+K + great staff = success!

We have been improving the lives of young people for over 25 years and whilst programmes, approaches and national policies change – one thing has remained constant – our commitment to employing very skilled, professional people.

Without our fantastic staff we simply wouldn’t be able to make the impact that we do. Without our advisers we wouldn’t be able to promote the full breadth of opportunities available, we wouldn’t be able to maintain low levels of NEET across our local authority contracts, and we wouldn’t be able to ensure we offer a diverse and inclusive service to everyone.

We employ over 100 specialist staff and each one makes a significant contribution to making C+K the success it is. But please don’t just take our word for it. Here is a sample of feedback we’ve received from young people, partners and education professionals in the last few months:

Feedback from young people:

“Much appreciation ‘J’, you’ve been a massive help in motivating me and I wish you all the best’’

“Very polite and professional”

“Thank you so much for preparing me!”

"I loved how happy you always were to assist me, made me feel so much better about the whole process."

“Your positivity and dedication motivated me to get it smashed off!! All in all 10/10"

“She is the best” 

“(I’m) very happy with the service ‘J’ provided and (I) found all the information very useful”.

“She made me believe that I could do it” 

“She was really kind and patient when explaining it to me”

Feedback from head teachers and education professionals:

“Thank you ‘L’ for your continued hard work with our students throughout what has been the most difficult of times. Your work ethic and tenacious spirit has proved invaluable and by never giving up on our students. Once again they are in a great position for taking the next steps in their learning journey."

“Thank you for the additional ways in which you have tried to engage our students, particularly the video you made for the Year 9 Options event.”

"We were very satisfied and happy with the service provided by ‘F’. We look forward to using C+K again next year."

In relation to young people applying for jobs and courses:

“Thank you so much for all of your help you have given and provided me with.”

“I wouldn’t be in this position without your help, I can notice a big positive change in the way I approached going for jobs.”

"I just wanted to express my sincere gratitude to yourself for helping get me on to this course… I loved every bit of (it). It has been really enjoyable - words cannot do justice so thank you.” 

"You were great (and it) helped me so much through my interview process. The calls the evening before and the morning just before helped me so much."

"I just want to say a big thank you for all your help through my whole interview process and everything. Without you I really wouldn’t have got the offers I did."

"Thanks to you I’ve got a place doing my dream course … you’re a star!"
