Student Reviews

A selection of recent feedback from learners completing courses with TECOL.

Dan Carr HND Mechanical Engineering

Completion June 2021

Tecol have been supportive throughout my three year course and would highly recommend their services. Balancing a fulltime job as well as an online course was made easy by Tecol due to the course material which I found easy to access and understand, plus when required, the tutors help is always there including quick and efficient responses. I wish Tecol all the best going forward and thank them for their help in finishing my HND course which would have been impossible without online distance learning and their support.

Richard Robinson BTEC Level 3 Engineering

Completion June 2021

I found that I rarely needed assistance, but when required, all communication was swift. I’m already in a very technical role but this course has now given me a greater foundation of knowledge to build on as I progress in my work.  I am planning for further study at HNC Level 4, then an employment promotion hopefully. The HNC topics that I plan now to study will be even more applicable to build on my current role at work. All good.

Helpful learning materials. The team were very helpful when I requested support. Support and advice was always there when I asked. 

Lee Ashmore BTEC Level 4 HNC Electrical/Electronic Engineering

Completion April 2021

I have experienced prompt replies from the tutor team regarding any questions asked during the course and I have experienced no issues in understanding the assessment tasks. The course was very relevant and useful to my job/employment prospects as I work in engineering. Admin support was good when required. My plans on completion of this course are to continue on and topup with another 7 units to complete the BTEC Level 5 HND Electrical/Electronic Engineering course. Having completed my Level 3 BTEC in Engineering now with TECOL and more recently the BTEC Level 4 HNC in Electrical/Electronic Engineering I am happy to recommend this company to anyone looking to expand their qualifications.

Elaine Jameson BTEC Level 3 Engineering

Completion March 2021

The material was structured very well. I liked the links all the way through to different videos/websites to learn more about that particular subject. I found the tutors very helpful, if l had any queries they would respond quickly. A large amount of what l learned from this course l have been able to apply in my current role. (Mechanical Design Engineer) A stepping stone to my goal of becoming a Senior Mechanical Design Engineer. Admin – I have found the team very helpful, l was given all the information l needed. I enjoyed taking this course, it was challenging at times but very rewarding. It has given me the confidence to think about higher education. My plans on completion of this course are?  I’m thinking about higher education, HND level. And also employment promotion.

Callum Lock BTEC Engineering

Completion Feb 2021

The learning materials and the tutors were very good and I was able to learn all required from them. Hopefully this level 3 certification will now lead to promotion at my work, which was the original reason for undertaking the course. I am currently waiting on my employer deciding if they wish me to go down the HNC or HND route.

Fraser Moore BTEC Engineering

Completion Feb 2021

Course tutors were always helpful when answering queries and made it clear what needed to be done to understand certain tasks that I may have struggled with. The worked example videos in the learning materials were extremely useful as I could replay these over and over if required. Working for an engineering company I felt that this course was very fitting to my role and I could relate certain units and tasks to my day to day work life. I am now taking a break from further learning, but may decide to study a higher level in future.

Ramunas Siupinys BTEC Engineering

The materials provided were sufficient and there were extra links to additional study material. The support from the teaching team was very responsive and fast – this was very professional. This course should now help me get the dream job in the electronics industry within microprocessor programming. The admin people were very easy to communicate with and they were always helpful and supportive when asked. My plans are now for further education and employment.

Steve Lawson BTEC Engineering

Completion Dec 2020

The course was great. Learning materials (notes) provided were very useful and interesting. The support from the tutors was excellent and quick when needed. I hop the course will now allow me to gain meaningful employment within the engineering industry. 

Lloyd Dichoso BTEC Engineering

Completion Nov 2020

Learning materials provided are very clear and easy to understand. Tutors were very helpful and responsive to any queries regarding the course which has been very relevant for future employment. I have had easy access to admin support, and they have been very responsive. My plans on completion of this course are for employment promotion.

Jake Wood BTEC Engineering

Completion Oct 2020

The learning materials really assisted in understanding the system and process behind the answers. Responses were on time and easy to understand. The course was beneficial as it was a basic qualification that I was lacking for my particular industry and a steppingstone to where I plan to go with my education. Admin response was on time and easy to understand. I wish to study further courses and acquire a Higher National Certificate. The tutor produced video links were vital in my engineering mathematics unit as they broke down the stages much clearer than just words on a page and I could rewind these and view time and time again.

Alexandra Williams – BTEC Level 3 Engineering

Completion Sept 2020
 
The course provided me with easy access to learning materials and tutors. Assessments were easy to request and overall a training provider I would recommend. This will now gain me employment promotion opportunites and I hope to enter Higher Education.

Michael Rendle – BTEC Level 3 Engineering (3 units & 6 units)

Completion August 2020

The course learning materials were very clear and well presented. Tutor support was good and clear. This course will hopefully be the starting block to get me to where I’d like to be. The course set up was effortless. Having now completed I have decided to do more units and have topped up onto the Diploma. I will hopefully move onto a HND afterwards.

Paige Carter – 6 unit Level 3 Engineering Mech/Electrical

Completion August 2020

Booklets were very informative and the course was very useful as I’m a mechanical fitter. Doing the combined mechanical/electrical course has widened my knowledge in the electrical sector of my job. The TECOL team have always been very responsive when I have asked. My plans on completion of this course are to carry on in the engineering industry and I am currently looking to complete a HNC in the future. I would recommend this to others.

Andrzej Dabal – Engineering (6 units & 9 units) 

Completion August 2020
At the moment I have completed 6 units I am now currently carrying on with an extra 3 units to make it up to the BTEC Level 3 90 Credit Diploma (9 units). After that I plan to carry on learning and start a HNC in engineering. I would like to apply for an electrical mechanical engineering position this year at my workplace and the current qualification will allow me to do this.

John Wilson – Electrical / Electronic Engineering

Completion July 2020

The learning materials for my course were excellent. When required, the tutors responded in a timely and effective manner. My course was paid for by my employer, as a help towards my current employment in commercial operations for an Engineering department. I am discussing with my Employer with regards to further education using TECOL for the next level of HNC. The Course was very useful for me, I have not participated in education for many years and I have found this a good introduction on the requirements of BTEC Engineering and coursework requirements.

Alexander Wakefield – Engineering

Absolutely excellent service provided by the tutors at TECOL. Contact was excellent and help was always there when needed. Excellent people! This will be an essential foundation for my future career path, and I thank everyone at Tecol for the ability to study towards this qualification so easily entirely online! A final thanks to Bill, Geoff and all of the admin team at Tecol for the outstanding service and constant contact when needed! An absolute credit to the education system and the course content was sublime! Thanks, Tecol – Very happy customer!

Anthony Ford  – Engineering

Completion June 2020        

Units studied here were truly relevant and covered a really good spread of things, an idea for future maybe to add a little something on types of couplings/fittings and different thread types NPT/BSP etc. Really good course and maybe tempted to take the electrical engineering course when I get myself sorted.

The support was really good, and the course was really relevant to my job. I am now completing the HNC Electrical & Electronic Engineering with the TECOL team and I may then complete an HND.

Adam Barker – Engineering (Electrical/Mechanical) 

Completion Feb 2020

The support was always there when the tutors were asked by email/skype/tel. Always willing to help friendly tutors regularly at hand to help and even free out of scheduled hours. Some criteria I use already in my work but also some criteria I will find very useful for the future. My plans on completion of this course are employment promotion and potential further studies. Top service from all the guys at Tecol and I could not really fault them, always willing to help and be flexible and have already recommended their service to a few of my colleagues. 

Anthony Moran – BTEC Level 3 Engineering & HNC Mechanical Engineering                                             

Completion Oct 2019

Online studying suits my lifestyle I work shifts so I can study around work and my family commitments. Studying in modules at my pace means I am in control how I progress with online support from a tutor if needed. Learning keeps you current and benefits my employer with a more rounded employee and I achieve industry recognised BTEC qualifications that go hand in hand with my practical experience. Benefits as a student for a small fee the NUS extra card is recognised at many outlets such as Amazon Student Prime. Have completed the Level 3 Engineering course Oct 19 and moved straight to HNC which is working out well so far!
