ATL’s focus is aimed at providing a learning environment where learners feel safe and have the opportunity to fulfill their potential.
Our Learner Support Manager supports the health and well-being of all our learners throughout their time with us and our designated safeguarding team ensures all colleagues are appropriately trained with specialist knowledge including Prevent, mental health, substance misuse and safeguarding. As well as offering first line support to help keep our learners safe, we provide pastoral support for any difficulties learners may be experiencing in or outside of their education. Working in partnership with multi-agency organisations throughout the Devon & Cornwall area, we have over 20 years of experience dealing with the kind of difficulties that can have a negative effect on learners and proven track record in supporting them to overcome obstacles to success.

Quote from Matrix reassessment in February 2017. ‘Achievement Training is committed to supporting its learners. It has well-developed and established student support function, with one particular member staff who has developed a high-profile and has gained the confidence and respect of staff and learners. Learners say that “he always knows what to do” and “he’s the go to guy”. The support is having a direct impact on helping people to avoid and overcome issues that may affect or already are affecting their learning’. ATL have held the MATRIX Standard since 2013.
