Feedback from our clients

Rob has contributed to our "Next steps Programme" for both Year 12 and Year 13 students. He has delivered very effective presentations on a variety of topics from "Writing personal statements" to "Choosing a university course and university". His presentations are always very enthusiastic and current. The students refer to his sessions as "very valuable and informative"

Judith Haig, Head of Sixth Form, Ilkley Grammar School

Rob Rattray has supported South Craven Sixth Form on a couple of occasions; he presented to parents about Higher Education at our Year 12 Progression Evening and then again to our students at our Year 13 Induction. He has given some 1-1 guidance with our student's about their personal statement which students found both honest and useful. Rob is very clear and explains things so that his target audience understands the messages he is delivering and we would have no hesitation to welcome him back in the future.

Paula Andrews, Sixth Form Support Manager, South Craven School

Rob gave a talk on some of the courses Goldsmith's university at our HEC in March and delivered an enthusiastic and informative presentation. Prior to this he visited us in the Careers Dept and we were most impressed with the range of subjects he could cover and his willingness to offer whatever we needed.

Josie Campbell, Head of Careers and Assistant Head of Sixth Form, Ampleforth College

As the careers adviser at Franklin College I have known Rob Rattray for nearly two years. Rob has been to the college several times both as a contributor at our annual careers fair and to run personal statement workshops. Rob Rattray was one of three representatives from different universities to deliver the workshops at college last year. The feedback from students on Rob’s workshops was excellent and by far the most positive. The students came away enthused and crucially with some really good ideas on how to get started on their personal statements. His entertaining, easy, no nonsense manner means he connects well with young people. He readily agreed to our request to come back into college again ahead of our internal UCAS deadline to do some individual work with students. I am pleased to be able to recommend him highly to you.

Darrell Collins, 
Careers Adviser, Franklin College

"The feedback we get from students when he has been speaking or running workshops is 100% positive. As well as being informative about any aspect of Higher Education you care to pick, he is hugely funny, engaging and raises aspirations by making the kids see what they are capable of and that University really is for someone like them. He also gives really down-to earth, useful advice about personal statements and what you should and shouldn't include on a UCAS form."

Nicola Ramsden, Head of Sixth Form, Ryburn Valley High School

Rob was brilliant and has made a huge impact with our students. The daytime workshops were very well attended and I have received excellent feedback form our students who are now making excellent progress with their UCAS applications and course research. The sessions for parents were also very well received and those parents now feel much more empowered and informed regarding higher education for their sons and daughters.
Being located in a remote, rural and coastal community presents us with significant challenges when arranging high quality information and guidance for our students and their families. It is extremely important that we can continue to ensure that our students receive the very best advice, guidance and support. This is only possible when working in partnership with organisations like yours and we value the support you give us and our community very highly.
I look forward to continuing to develop our links with your organisation and look forward to working with you and Rob again in the near future.
