“Through my experiences at Burning2Learn I have

made some great friendships and gained some truly amazing experiences and skills. The experience has raised 

my own self-esteem and confidence in my

ability to achieve despite my Dyslexia.”

and understanding skills.”

“I was very very shy, you know, I kept my head down and

worked very hard. I was nervous a lot of the time 

and had a lack of confidence in myself. At least

90% of my confidence has come from working

with Alan and Burning2Learn – it has been

absolutely fantastic.”

a photographer or whatever else it gives you two things;

the experience and the confidence.”

“A Burning2Learn experience is very beneficial to

young people; I guess it allows you to have different

opportunities to function in the real world. To find your comfort

zone and tint the real world with your ideas.”

people and different learning environments.”

Parent Testimonials

 

“My son hates school but with Burning2Learn he doesn't realise he is doing school work. After spending two days up at Silverstone (on a Career Day) he asked me to bring him up for the weekend.  He wanted to work, even though he didn’t know he was working!”

 

- Parent, Kent

 

"Thank you so much for ensuring (my child) had a very informative yet enjoyable work experience. I have seen a real change in (my child) this week and up until now he has found it difficult to leave the house for any reason other than school.  I can tell by the enthusiasm re the trip that (my child) has benefited so much from his placement. Thanks again to you

and your colleagues."
