Success Stories

5E Ltd is the place that trained me to be an excellent Microsoft Engineer – good enough to win 1st place in the World Skills Regional Network Administration Tournament

Adnan Khawaja

Apprentice, 5E Ltd

I came to England from Colombia six months ago. I did not know how to speak English at all. I studied ESOL with 5E Ltd and now I am working and have a full-time job. I am very thankful to all the staff for their help and support.

Harold Aramburo

ESOL Student, 5E Ltd

I was a single parent looking for employment that would work around my daughter’s school timing but I lacked confidence. 5E helped me to get into work as a Self-Employed Nanny and supported with me tax information, in-work support, training in interview skills and rebuilding my CV

Su Wai Mon

Self-Employed Nanny, GAP

I got onto the Youth Programme at 5E Ltd and an advisor supported me with employability skills and got a new job at the Co-Op. 5E continues to help me with my University applications so hopefully I will be attending university…
