Our Colleagues are the Best!

We asked our staff to tell us why R.E.A.L. Education is such a great place to work. 

As we head into the Christmas holidays, we thought we’d share some of the wonderful comments R.E.A.L. staff had to make about their colleagues:

“Fabulous colleagues who support each other.”

“Being new to a team is always daunting but all staff at R.E.A.L. Education have been super supportive and friendly. Everybody respects and practises the ethos of the company. Both staff and students I have met during my journey at R.E.A.L. have been professional, enthusiastic and welcoming. I can safely say I’m super happy to be a part of the R.E.A.L. team and look forward to what the future will bring for me, my colleagues and our students.”

“R.E.A.L. is like a huge family, everyone is so helpful and has time for each other; we always work together to help brighten a child’s future” 

“It is one big team. Everyone is listened to.” 

“Great team at Sandhills; learning managers and other members of staff are really understanding and easy to talk to.”

“I find R.E.A.L. Education a great place to work for many reasons – There is a brilliant support system in place for staff; help is always a phone call or email away. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The job is very rewarding. There’s always lots of training on offer.” 

“Colleague support is fantastic.”

“Lovely and helpful staff, fantastic environment to work in.”

“Lots of opportunities for training, approachable managers and variety of work.”

And finally…. we love this comment which we think really sums up what it’s like to work at R.E.A.L.:

“R.E.A.L. Education gives you the freedom to be expressive in your teaching style, the confidence to adapt your practice and try new things and the training to make it all work for the benefit of the learner.”
