"It’s an easy learning tool. People learn at their own pace and have to answer questions on their own understanding. They’re not being led by the individual. It’s always ready as an accessible tool.
E-learning is something that can run alongside one-to-one training. You can use e-learning as a basic grounding and then build on that with one-to-one training. The Esky course isn’t patronising or childlike in its delivery. You could sit a young person in front of it, you could sit a mature person in front of it. It has a universal appeal."
Mark Nicholls, Environmental Health Officer
"This [fire safety course] is a very impressive training package. The topic of fire safety has been presented in an interesting way and there is a lot of information in the programme. The modular format allows the trainee to proceed at their own pace. The interactive activities and excellent graphics will hold the trainee's interest."
Royal Institute of Public Health
"Thanks so much. Your service is so efficient and user-friendly and the customer service you give personally is fantastic.
Esky Food Hygiene courses not only help us to keep our 5 star rating but also enable the homeless people that we house and support, all of whom have complex needs / multiple disadvantage, to achieve useful qualifications, volunteer in our training kitchen and go onto independent living with better hope for future employment."
Kate Moss - Tenancy Sustainment Business Development Officer
"Our setting has used the services of Esky on-line training for many years We like the variety of courses on offer which meets our needs. We find this type of training very convenient because staff can complete the training on site and at the convenience of the setting thus reducing the need for cover.
We like the facility to print off a certificate which can be put on view to our customers and provides evidence of professional development for the staff. Our dealings with Esky have always been very professional and helpful and I would thoroughly recommend this training"
Elizabeth Somers, Headteacher and Committee member of the Pre-School and Before and After School Club
"We use Esky Learning extensively throughout our business. The enforcing authority regard it as one of the best online services and readily accept the certificates. Our staff fulfil the requirements in their own time, saving us money and the inconvenience of a full day course off the premises."

"This style of learning represents value for money, flexibility and injects humour into what can sometimes be ‘dry’ topics. Staff with little or no IT experience find this system very easy to use and senior managers welcome not only the cost savings but also the ease of covering mandatory training that this system represents."
Alison Brookman, Head of HR, Canterbury Cathedral
"It’s not just an online manual or slide show, but a fully interactive method of teaching through animated scenarios and exercises. Training is often perceived as boring - but we’re getting fantastic feedback from all the team members, who say this an enjoyable and fun way to learn."
Hannah Williams, Holland House Hotel
