What parents say...

She is a quiet girl and I was concerned that her poor spelling was not being corrected.  When she saw the progress Bella was making in such a short time, I enrolled her for Maths as well!   It has transformed her thinking and she now has the self-esteem to ask questions in both numeracy and literacy.

She says “I Love to Learn Now!”

Mariana brought her daughter to us as she was having a few problems with maths at school.  She liked it so much that now she comes for English as well!  Mariana says that now “She is more confident with math now and she’s coming to I Love to Learn for pleasure.  She is very happy with her teacher, she says she is very kind and patient.”

He got an 8 in English Language and a 7 in English Literature, he has always struggled with English and wouldn’t of been able to achieve these amazing grades without yours and Adam’s help, if you could please let him know how Joshua done. So once again thank you for all the work you did with him.” Emily (parent) 2021

“We also had a parent’s meeting at his school earlier this week.  I am pleased to say that his maths teacher was very impressed with not only his work, but also his attitude toward it.  I can only say that this is because of the wonderful service you and your colleagues have given.  Thank you so much for this.  Ellis is really enjoying his time with you and also seeing how well he is doing and this has resulted in a positive attitude towards learning.” James (parent) 2021

“Thanks for all your hard work with Rebecca Kivlin. She has started Milton Cross this week. Rebecca is in the top set for maths and science, and the second group for everything else. Without coming to Love to Learn she would never have achieved this.  Thanks”

“Dear Howard Thank you so much for all these lessons you’ve been giving me!  They really have improved my work at school and now I can put all your help to good use with my SATs.  Thank you so much for everything! From Lewis”
Lewis (student)
Firstly, I would like to thank yourselves and your staff for all your help and dedication to helping my daughter Saoirse with her maths.  She has shown an improvement with her confidence at attempting to handle the mathematics she is give by her school.  And I feel this is due to the staff at your centre, she had a very rough year in Year 4, with her very unsympathetic teacher and you all helped her through that.  For that I’m very grateful.
Mrs R Wall
At the time of writing this testimonial, my daughter has had only 5 sessions and her confidence and ability has increased significantly!  (Now) she talks of enjoying maths and of her abilities in maths instead of her inabilities, participates more in maths lessons at school and is keen to do her maths homework, both from school and from the sessions.  As a parent I am thrilled that her confidence has grown significantly and would recommend I Love to Learn without hesitation.

We brought him to the centre in Year 6 because he just had no idea about maths.  This year won the ‘Most Improved in Maths’ certificate for his year.  He also came top of his class in 2 out of 3 maths exams.  Coming to here is the best thing we ever did!

What is a T-Level Vocational Qualification?

Explaining T-Level Qualifications

studentThe T-Level qualification is a new technical education route introduced in the UK, designed to offer students a vocational alternative to A-Levels. You may have heard of BTECs which they are designed to replace.  The T-Level is designed to give 16-18 year olds more work experience and more access to challenging vocational qualifications.   The main difference is the amount of time the qualification allows for students to work in industry.

T-Levels are two-year technical courses that combine classroom learning with industry placements. They were introduced to provide young people with practical skills and experience needed to succeed in the workplace. T-Levels were launched in September 2020, with the aim of offering 25 different subjects by 2023.

Example Subjects

Digital Production

Agricultural, Evironmental and Animal Care

Catering and Hospitality


Creative and Design

Health & Science

Education and Childcare

Sales, Marketing Procurement

Engineering and Manufacturing

Business Administration

Legal, Finance Accounting

1. Industry-Relevant Skills: T-Levels are designed in collaboration with employers to ensure that students gain the skills and knowledgework experience needed in the workplace.
2. Work Placement: Each T-Level includes a substantial work placement, giving students real-world experience and helping them build valuable connections in their chosen industry.
3. Clear Pathways: T-Levels offer clear pathways to employment or further study, providing students with a direct route into their chosen career.
4. Recognition: T-Levels are recognised by many universities and employers, providing students with a credible qualification.


T-Levels are still relatively new, and there may be some stigma attached to vocational education compared to traditional academic routes like A-Levels.  Some students have been disappointed that they have not been as widely accepted by universities as promised.  While there are plans to expand the range of subjects available, the initial offering of T-Levels is limited compared to the wide range of subjects available through A-Levels.  This has improved more recently with the release of more qualifications, however, the resourcing and teaching of each subject my vary.

It is will be important for students and parents to make sure that the course they apply to has good quality teaching and is properly resourced.  Also, be aware that students will need to do 315 hours of work placement.  These placements are an important part of the course, but again may vary in quality.  Make sure the institution is well organised to place students is appropriate positions as this will have a big impact on the student’s experience.Overall, T-Levels offer an innovative approach to technical education in the UK, providing students with valuable skills and experience to succeed in their chosen careers. However, there are still challenges to overcome in terms of implementation and perception.
