Thank goodness we found Technology Triumphs! As a home educating parent, providing a well-rounded and engaging education can feel heavy. In choosing Technology Triumphs, I can honestly say that that weight became lighter. My son loves working towards the qualification and I have felt supported by Pip, her team and the lovely Technology Triumphs community at every step. We are working towards the Entry Level 1-3 in Creative Craft. My son has special educational needs and we withdrew him from his special school as he wasn’t coping well. He struggles with learning and managing everyday living skills so I really wanted to find something for him which would help him achieve and build skills he could take with him into his adult life. This course has given him so much - not just confidence in the kitchen but also a sense of self-worth. It’s given us a joint love of ‘creating’ something together too. We have been able to take each workbook at our own pace which allows my son extra time to practice and process the steps needed to complete tasks successfully. If I have any questions the Technology Triumphs team are always on hand to help - I honestly can’t recommend them highly enough! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Diane Buddle: Parent of Entry Level Award learner
It's a fantastic course, my 10 year old and 12 year old are loving it and I've just enroled my 14 year old as well!Sarah Thorby
I would truly recommend Technology Triumphs to anyone who homeschools their children. My daughter started in September, and she is loving it and growing in confidence. When she was in school she wouldn't take part in any activities, but now she is taking part. The tutors are understanding and respond quickly.Ms Blowes: Parent
Simply incredible! I had heard reviews about Technology Triumphs but like all new things was a little apprehensive as to whether it would suit my daughter's way of learning. It's blown us away, the workbooks are brilliant, everything is explained amazingly. Help is always there for you and you're never made to feel like you're being a nuisance.Z.A Learner Parent
My son was home educated for his secondary school years after finding the school environment very difficult. Technology Triumphs was one of the few places where we could find accredited distance learning courses for him. He took the Creative Craft Cookery course, completed it, passed and really increased in his confidence to cook. The course was very well designed and fun and we found it at the perfect time. Technology Triumphs was an important part of his Home Education journey which he is now continuing at college. Highly recommended. Thank you for everything.Rebecca Hyder: Parent of Level 2 Cookery learner
My two boys completed level one cookery and I would recommend it to anyone. learning to cook is fundamental! The course is really well structured and the boys enjoyed the challenges. Just great. thanks again!Ms Verle: Parent of 2 Level 1 Cookery Learners
Jo and Pip are both lovely, my son is home educated and has been on the level 1 cooking course and has really enjoyed it, any questions along the way they’ve answered straight away and helped wherever they can, I think it’s great the support they give to the children and us parents too! My son will be staying on for another year to do the photography course. I would highly recommend technology Triumphs ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Kelly-Anne Harris: Parent of Level 1 Cookery and Photography learner
As a parent of a learner, I love TT. The relaxed way it works with no time stipulations. The system of having the videos to learn from and the booklet to fill in is a nice easy way to work and the digital sketchbooks are great if your are disorganised because they can just snap a picture of wherever they've done the work and add it in.S.R Learner Parent
Daniel enjoys the practical cooking, he loves that he can adapt recipes and is always proud of his finished dish. I was impressed with the course content and the easy payment scheme with flexibility to halt if needed when life gets hectic.Samantha Ayres
My son just got all distinctions on his first half term of assignments at college! I'm amazed! He had always been home educated and is now doing a L3 Btec in digital art/game design at college. He had previously completed the L2 Mixed Media and L2 Cookery courses with Technology Triumphs, so he had already learned how to evidence the process of his art work and to do independent research on various artists and then write up a summary. He finds it hard but I'm sure the TT courses gave him a huge head start with having done similar tasks before. I'm thankful that the college easily accepted with NCFE L2 qualifications (alongside maths and english GCSE's) and am thankful to TT for preparing him so well!Shay Forbes
We have just started our second term. Going really well. The theory seems spot on to expectation.Alison Charman
Tomas is now doing his college professional chef course! And loving it, he said he is far ahead of his peers, many of which have never made a full meal before or knew how to chop onions. Your course has given him a huge boost as he has never been in a school classroom before so there was a lot to get used too, so having a lot of the technological knowledge already in place has reduced the stress significantly. Thank you so much. (Update: Tomas received Distinctions in his Bread and Fish and Chips exam at college)Level 2 Cookery parent
(the best thing about the course is) The progression of Nico's confidence, and his 'chill factor' when things don't go to plan...which is a huge thing for us to notice with his specific needs, it's enjoyable to watch how calm, relaxed and in control he is.Lisa-Marie Fletcher
Today, my daughter has completed the second session and I have noticed fascinating changes. My approach hasn't changed, both times I asked her to clean up after herself at the beginning of the session and was available for questions but let her do everything herself. She has become proud of her creation with the sense of responsibility now added. I am gobsmacked!Mirjam Eichenberger
