  • Work placements
  • Building confidence and self-esteem

"I love my AAA course because it is a lot smaller, safer and the staff are much friendlier than at larger colleges. I enjoy the social side and meeting new friends - I feel like we are a huge family! My confidence has increased so much, I now volunteer once a week at a local church toddler group"
