What our past students said


“When I first began studying with Academy of York I was unemployed. Opportunities were few and I knew that I had to do something to change my life. So armed with nothing but a burning desire to learn new skills and do something to change my future, I enrolled for a Life Coaching course. This course was inspirational, it gave me the skills and motivation to start a Life Coaching business. It had a huge impact on my life; I was able to help others change their circumstances and through these experiences, I was able to write a book ‘Have a New You. The Power of Change’. I would never have achieved these dreams if it weren’t for the help and motivation from Academy of York.’”
