Testimonials

The cHRysos team were both engaging and challenging in their delivery style, as well as being very knowledgeable on the topic area.

This workshop was resourceful, particularly the use of interaction analysis tools for self-assessment and the identification of group dynamics within the workshop teams and I found the setting and discussion points useful in helping to set out a framework for writing the assignment.

Once again, I particularly enjoyed comparing my organisation’s current work practices with various practises of the other participants’ organisations.

I would highly recommend cHRysos HR to any individual who wishes to gain a qualification with the CIPD in HR. They provided an excellent service throughout the course and were extremely supportive. They are very professional and experienced in their areas of tuition.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course, it was intense and difficult at times completing the assignments but I knew that before I started.   The tutors made us all feel welcome and were very professional.

I would definitely use cHRysos HR again, without hesitation in the future.

The training cHRysos delivered was exceptional. The tutors all possessed a working knowledge of all aspects of managing Human Resource in the work place. Their experience and advice was invaluable. 
 
I would like to take this opportunity to once again express my gratitude to everyone at cHRysos for their excellent tuition and valued support throughout the level 5 diploma course [CIPD Intermediate Diploma in HR Management].  I really cannot thank you all enough.

cHRysos HR were very knowledgeable and professional and worked with me to provide the company with an employment contract which was clear and fair for both parties; and most importantly meets the business need. 

They were very easy to work with; I felt in good hands and confident that I was getting the best HR advice to protect the business.

I am very satisfied and grateful for the service provided, and I would without hesitation use Chrysos HR Solutions for any other HR requirements I may need in the future. 

David MacLean
Managing Director
ProTech Roofing Ltd

cHRysos HR were very professional throughout the services they provided. We were informed of deadlines for the provision of documents which were always met. Rather than providing “off the shelf” polices and procedures that did not fit our business need, cHRysos HR worked to update and “tweak” what was already in place. This ensured the implementation of the final suite of documents was easy for our staff to understand.

We would certainly recommend Chrysos to others.

cHRysos HR delivered a thoroughly professional service from the very first telephone call. They demonstrated excellent knowledge and managed the process efficiently and thoroughly. They were always available and communicated on a regular basis to keep me up to date with progress. A proficient, high quality service from approachable, skilled professionals.

I would have no reservations in recommending cHRysos to others.

The team at cHRysos was great. They came to meet with me to discuss exactly what HR Consultancy Services I needed and gave me options to suit my budget. They were extremely patient with all my questions and reviewed documents over and over again until we got them exactly right. I'd definitely use cHRysos again!

I completed a Foundation Diploma in HR Practice with CHRysos HR Solutions and I managed to fit my course around a busy work schedule, finding the pace of the course right for me.

The qualification requirements were clearly explained to me at the start of the programme and my assessor Charles Stewart discussed the assessment process with me too. I was really happy with the amount of contact I had with Charles and he was always clear and helpful with his advice.

I’ve also been given clear feedback and advice about the work I have submitted and how I develop further. It was also really good to see my assessment reports for each of my assignments, so I feel the assessment process was satisfactory.

Everything was explained clearly when I started the programme and a full brief was given by the assessor. There were always plenty of tutors available, even for extra meetings and I was always given clear feedback with clear guidelines on what needed developing further. We received assessment reports at the end of each until and the whole process was very much more than satisfactory.

I have now completed two courses with Chrysos HR and would highly recommend them to anybody wanting a career in management or HR. I felt that Julie herself was an inspirational tutor. She was always on hand to provide support and guidance and always prioritised our learning. 

There were times when I felt like giving up on this course but Julie was able to motivate me to continue. I am very proud of the qualification I have achieved and would like to thank Julie for everything that she has done for me.

I was really pleased overall with the level of service from Chrysos HR. Everything was explained to me very clearly at the beginning of the programme and I was really pleased with the amount and quality of the support and advice I received. My Assessor shared her reports with me and I was given clear feedback and points for development by my Assessor. I'm now hoping to continue onto level 5 with the same tutor.

A big thank you to everyone at cHRysos HR for supporting me through what was a challenging but thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding Advanced Diploma in HRM.  The learning environment was welcoming and the team have been flexible and supportive throughout.  Course administration issues were dealt with efficiently and support from the tutors was excellent.  For me, the support went further than just the course.  cHRysos HR also helped me relate my emerging interest in organisational development to previous experience which has been invaluable in developing my career path. For anyone considering undertaking an HRM qualification I would definitely recommend getting in touch with cHRysos. HR.

I just wanted to write to express my thanks to my tutor at cHRysos HR for his commitment to ensuring that I completed my level 5 HRM. He showed a lot of patience with me and coached me through the course, especially when I was ready to give up.  Please pass on my thanks to him for being a brilliant tutor.  Also I would like to thank cHRysos HR as well, the whole process of my study has been dealt with smoothly and hassle free.  It's been a pleasure dealing with you and once again thank you.

After researching many different organisations upon which to undertake my learning, I decided upon cHRysos HR, this being one of the best decisions I have ever made! My tutor had a wealth of knowledge, whilst his support and encouragement followed in abundance. Being able to have the flexibility to undertake my study allowed me to juggle work and family life at the same time. My tutor was a fantastic motivator and a true asset to the cHRysos HR team. He made the learning seamless from start to finish and I cannot thank him enough for assisting me in completing my goal.....I can't wait to start my journey in HR.

Thank you to everyone for all the support and advice that I received – Kristina Henry was fantastic.  Hugely patient, full of advice and encouragement and an endless source of knowledge and ideas. I would have been lost without her amazing guidance.

It has been great to work with yourself and Chrysos over the last 10 months and I have gained some great innovative ideas to take back into my organisation. It is great to spend time with like-minded L&D professionals and I have gained a lot from this.

Before the course started I was apprehensive and didn’t know what to expect, the help and assistance that cHRysos provided eased this process.  During the course, the various tutors were extremely knowledgeable and guided the class expertly through a subject that was in the most part alien to the group.  cHRysos provided a great environment to study which was fun, diverse and enjoyable.  The knowledge gained from the course has enabled me to be employed in a HR environment at my first interview.  I am truly grateful to all tutors and staff of cHRysos for making the transition to civilian life so much easier

We appointed cHRysos HR Solutions to support us with delivery of HR within our business.  We chose a pay-as-you-go arrangement and have a named HR consultant - Peter Steadman - who works closely with us.  Pete has got to know our business and is very responsive to our needs.  He is really down to earth and approachable.   cHRysos HR support us in dealing with our HR issues as they arise but also work with us to ensure we have best practice HR policies and procedures to take us forward.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help over the last year. I really enjoyed coming to CHRYSOS HR and the teaching methods and course set up was excellent. Please send on my thanks and appreciation to all the tutors and to Sean.

Johny Cheeseman

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for the support and guidance given over the last 12 months.  I started this course unsure of what to expect as I had not undertaken any kind of academic activity since GCSEs (and that was a very long time ago!).  The help and encouragement offered by your tutors and supporting staff have had a significant impact on not only the results that I have achieved, but also on my own levels of self-confidence and I extend my thanks to all.

Emma Bateman

I chose cHRysos HR as I wanted to complete a qualification quickly so I could access a course and become qualified in the profession of HR prior to the next college intake of students.

Participating in a course that was flexible in the start and finish times suited my work-life balance with work, family and study.  The tutor and cHRysos Manager were helpful when I required guidance and I completed the course within a year of signing up.  Now I have 2 professional qualifications that work together – my first class BA (Hons) Business and HR Management degree and CIPD Intermediate Diploma in HRM.

Suzanne Enguita

I have just completed the CIPD Foundation Diploma in Learning and Development Practice and would like to thank cHRysos HR for their support throughout this course.

I would especially like you to know how supportive my tutor has been in providing feedback and guidance, quick response to queries and nothing was too much trouble.

I feel a great sense of achievement having completed my qualification and I could not have done it without the support of cHRysos... thank you.

Tracy Thornton

I have found the atmosphere and environment at cHRysos HR Solutions Ltd very conducive to learning.  The style of learning used is very good, from the delivery of the taught lessons to the tutor support available.  In addition, the facilities such as tea/coffee making and lunch provision make for an enjoyable atmosphere.

Simon Burton

cHRysos HR Solutions Ltd. provides great facilities i.e. accessible tutors, support staff, a quiet classroom, Wi-Fi internet, library, printer and a common room. A good atmosphere for students to study in and relax.

Bidhan Gurung

I started my Course in March 2012 and have enjoyed all aspects and modules. I believe the course has given me an excellent understanding of HR best practices and a platform to deliver in my new work place. It has also helped me understand the importance of CIPD and how continuous learning and development can help improve you in the work place and also enhance your career profile.

The coaching I have received from the tutors has been excellent. I feel my learning has developed from the practical approach all tutors have used. The course set up was excellent and the support from the other members of cHRysos HR was first class.  Without the support and help of the staff at cHRysos I wouldn't have achieved my Diploma and reached my goals.

Johnny Cheeseman

Just a brief note to say thank you for my Diploma, it just arrived today and it made my day.

Once again I want to thank you and David for the professional, efficient and effective 'learning journey' I had the pleasure to undertake with you.   You made it easy for a person who is not a native English speaker and therefore I think you deserve even more respect .

The journey I took with Chrysos was a great educational adventure!

I am honestly grateful to Chrysos for making learning a pleasure.

After studying at college and university - where the methods of assessment were mostly exams or essays - gathering evidence and attending workshops was all new to me. However, it has allowed me to develop a new way of learning and I am now able to relate more to the personnel offshore in the way they are assessed through our competence system. Completing the course alongside my colleagues was a definite high for me, it was so nice to have others around me going through the same thing and sharing our thoughts on various questions.

Over the last year, Aker Solutions training departments have joined forces to introduce a slightly different mode of studying for staff to enhance their knowledge and experience. This is an excerpt from an article posted on the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board website outlining how successful the in-house training was that we recently provided.

I’d like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to Kate for her tireless help and support throughout the last 2 years. I have not attempted any sort of studying since leaving school which was a very long time ago so found starting this programme a daunting experience. I couldn’t have completed this without the support and guidance provided by Kate.

I found the complete course from start to end (showing interest on the website to receiving my certificate) easy and fully explained at every level. My tutor was exceptionally professional and extremely knowledgeable, which I feel will boost any student’s confidence to complete any course with cHRysos HR. Any person looking to pursue a career within Human Resources should never look further than cHRysos HR for all their needs. I have completed the Level 3 Foundation Diploma in HR Practice and I am confident to take my business to the next level. We are a new business and the support from cHRysos HR will help me grow a structured, fair and thriving HR L&D part of the business.

I would be happy to recommend cHRysos to anyone thinking of PAC. They were always available and quick to respond to any queries and my Adviser was wonderful, far more than I could have hoped for; challenging and supportive and fun!

From registration to CIPD Chartered accreditation – superb! I have nothing but praise for the team at cHRysos HR Solutions Ltd. The CIPD PAC programme was professionally delivered and tailored to my individual requirements. Throughout, you are under the stewardship of an experienced, knowledgeable and extremely credible cHRysos PAC assessor. It took me a little under 12 months to complete and was backed up with continuous advice, guidance and support. Any individual or organisation involved in strategic personnel or development, I would have two points - do the CIPD PAC programme via the advisor led route and do it with cHRysos HR Solutions Ltd. You will not be disappointed!
