I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Akshay and the rest of the 5e team as they were very helpful in advising and guiding me through the transitional period of unemployment to full time employment. 5E is a good and friendly environment so it's easy to feel comfortable there and I honestly can say that they had a massive impression on my life because apart from the help with interview techniques and help with job searches, the advisors also helped me on areas outside of non employment with things like housing advice and a lot of social and personal issues regarding of course if I was willing to confide in them. All in in all from my time coming here I've learnt to be more confident in myself and also some valuable life principles like being able to take control of my circumstances and not letting what others may see as a is advantage to hold me back from pursuing goals and dreams. I'm now employed as a customer service manager at a top high street retail and gaming company but I can still pop in to 5E when I'm free which is a big plus to know I would still have accessto their help and resources. I would encourage anyone looking for employment to get om board with 5E and that as long as you fully engage with them and have that mindset of bettering yourself then there's no limit to what you're future would hold.
Customer Service Apprenticeships
When I was referred to the Work Programme I did not know what to expect, but when I met my adviser Urkiye I felt at ease and comfortable talking to her, I had applied for several jobs with no success then my adviser arrange an interview with Aniksha from Remploy for a Customer Service role and she arranged an interview with Marks & Spencer’s I was given 2 weeks training/Work Trial and after this I have been told that I was successful so once I obtained my new passport I was able to start the job which was 2 weeks later. I am very grateful to My Advisor Urkiye for helping me to get this job. Urkiye also secured travel cost for me so that I would not have difficulty travelling to my job. I thoroughly enjoy my job and cannot thank urkiye and Maximus and all of 5E enough for helping me to secure a job with M &S who has been very supportive in empowering me to succeed. I have now been working for nearly 1 week.
Level-3: Server Infrastructure Specialist
After a year of getting of nowhere with my job searching I came to 5E to do a IT course In the hopes to upskill myself. The course open my eyes to the careers available to me. Alongside my course I was a given an advisor who pushed me to be the best I could be, we spent hours together working on my conﬁdence and self-esteem and guided me towards my career goals. 5E have graciously not only helped with my course but given me the conﬁdence to succeed in interviews. Intense and thorough preparation ultimately helped me get a digital marketing apprenticeship. Thanks to 5E and the support from my advisor I’ve found work in Techholic, as an digital marketing apprentice
I’ve done a lot of training courses with different providers before I started with 5E. When I ﬁrst started , I just thought of it to be just any old place that would not push me to do my best. I soon realised that I was ﬁnally getting the right information to help me succeed in life. I felt welcomed in 5E, all the advisers really helped me to come out of my comfort zone. But as soon as they sent me to Traineeship in Edmonton, the people there really helped me become better, change the way I dress and motivate me to work harder. Through the help of my mentors I was able to get my ﬁrst job in the Hospitality sector but it was not what I wanted to do so I enrolled into Computer Maintenance course which inspired me to pursue a career in the tech industry. With the support of my advisers I was able to secure my ideal job as a digital marketing apprentice.
During my time doing PCM, I learnt a lot about hardware installation, software conﬁguration, basic networking and overall customer service skills. This experience led me to want a career in ﬁrst line support and I gained a lot of help, advice and guidance from my advisor to create a good quality CV, cover letter and Reed Proﬁle.I have had several meetings with the business development team, and have been put forward for a work placement, which I am waiting to hear from. I’m so grateful and happy for all the help. I received at 5E and trust to ﬁnd something with them soon.
ECDL Entry Level 3
I started ECDL with 5E where I learnt so much about using Microsoft Packages and how to use a computer properly in an office environment. Also I had many one to one career sessions and mock interviews with my work coach, in which I have become more confident in my career and interviews. Currently, I am studying AAT Level 2 where the tutor is brilliant and I am really enjoying my time at 5E.ltd. Plus I have been in a work experience placement which is relevant to my career in administration and accounting. So glad I have met with 5E who has experience and is really reliable.
I found 5E ltd. From my father who was once a student here. Before I joined , I was studying at Winchmore School Sixth Form; I then found out 5E Ltd had vacancies for apprenticeships, which I had applied for. I was accepted for a traineeship course in PCM. It gave me an introduction which I found very helpful, it was for ﬁve weeks .Upon completion I advanced to an apprenticeship which provides good support and effective teaching methods, this includes: one to one support which helps me get a better understanding of what I learn during the course.Through the help of 5E. I am now a level 3 ICT Apprentice and currently studying MCSA.
Mony Ghazi -
5E get the best out of you, My ESOL classes were very good. I learnt a lot of grammar that I had no idea about before and I can now write much better. Most importantly I truly enjoyed the many classroom discussions we had and the group work we did. I made many friends and gained the confidence to express my views and opinions
ESOL boosts job prospects - After finishing an ESOL course and volunteering for 5E, I was called for a job interview. I am now working at 5E and trying to help others learn new skills. I have to thank 5E for this golden opportunity to start a new life in London.

Step by step to success. Being on ESA and then JSA, the journey was a step by step process made possible by Soniya. She motivated me and gave me great support and guidance. All my advisers at 5E have been friendly and warm. I have gained so much!
Help to showcase skills, was unsure about how to find a job and how to showcase my existing skills to employers and the job market. I am so happy with my experience at 5E. Kavitha was really supportive and gave me all the help I required to begin employment
