Jonathan Seaton MD Twinkl Ltd
“I’m Jonathan Seaton and I am the Managing Director of Twinkl Ltd. Twinkl is an online educational publishing house, featuring over 127,000 digital teaching materials, used worldwide. We take pride in our work and have a real desire to help our users even more, so I decided to invite more resource designers to join the team; which is why we decided to work with Voca. Not only are Voca a local business, but also one of a very few companies that is focused on traditional training for people wanting to get involved in design, whilst working. The quality of the work Voca provide has really impressed me, as they give each of the learners the chance to create something for a real company based in Sheffield, which has helped boost their confidence. This can clearly be seen by the work they do here at Twinkl. Our learners have benefited working with Voca , as they are always on hand to help out and they go out of their way to make everyone happy by providing extra facilities and equipment for the learners. It is my belief that not only is the course that Voca provides of very high quality and value to the learners, but they are very friendly and enthusiastic. I have been working with Voca since July 2013, starting with 6 learners and I would recommend them to any company, whether big or small."

“The Voca Voca apprentice scheme has been a great success. We have the benefit of working with a young, eager-to-learn individual who can bring a fresh perspective to our activities, and Matt is gaining valuable experience within a real work environment. We couldn’t be happier with the scheme and the benefits it has brought for all. Nest.co.uk have always been supporters of paid apprentices and, as a Sheffield business, we like to connect with the local community, so the Voca Voca apprenticeship scheme is ideal for us. Matt has been working with Nest.co.uk for 10 months now and already we have seen a dramatic improvement in his work. He is motivated, eager-to-learn and full of ideas. We’re really excited by his progress and we’re keen to see how he develops in the future with a little guidance from our team. We would recommend the Voca Voca scheme to all local businesses.”
