Student Testimonials


“Burning2Learn has helped me a lot, especially

with my organisation and confidence, and I have been able

to use these skills in school and life in general.” 


- Year 10 Student


“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.” 


- Year 11 Student



“I had a really great time at your Career Day! I believe that the experience really helped my writing, listening

and understanding skills.”


- Year 10 student


“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.”


- Past student



“That’s the brilliant thing… whether you’re a writer,

a photographer or whatever else it gives you two things;

the experience and the confidence.”


- Year 13


“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.” 


- Year 13


"Burning2Learn has shown me how to be around different

people and different learning environments.”


- Year 12


“You don’t have to act like an idiot to get respect. You’ve got

to have belief in somebody when they believe in you.” 


- Student from a class of which 80% have gone to prison




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."


- Parent, Kent

"You are never too young to lead. You are never too young to do what it is you actually believe in. We keep saying that the future belongs to  the young; it only belongs to you if you take it. From what I have seen, 

you young people are going to change the world; and you have to be that change that you want to see."


- Kofi Annan, Former Secretary General of The United Nations
