What our Students think of us!
Here is a sample of comments received from students over the years...
Penny Lewis Secretarial College have been outstanding. I have just received my first certificates towards my Administration, IT and Text Processing diplomas. The support is excellent and the endless patience of Penny Lewis has allowed me to study completely at home. The tuition is first class and the course material is divided into easy lessons, making them interesting and enjoyable. It’s amazing how quickly my skills have built up in such a short time. I would recommend Penny Lewis College to anyone wanting to gain secretarial qualifications."

Please find attached the tables for this exercise. Just thought I would give you a quick update. I start my new job tomorrow at an engineering firm in central London doing secretary/reception work.. I had to sit a speed and typing test for the interview and did 55 wpm, which considering I haven't really had a lot of experience apart from this course I was quite proud of my achievement. Am aiming to get around 70 wpm at least so will keep my head down and keep trying. It's nice to see how much this course has paid off already! I'm really enjoying it all! and feel so much more confident than ever before..So a big thank you to you and your team. Hope you had a lovely weekend, and hopefully hear from you soon.

Email from Dawn Hemstock,
Hi Penny, Just wanted to let you know how my exam went.
I thought it went really well. I had plenty of time to proof read everything and go over any mistakes that I had made.
I think I have passed, though I am aiming for a distinction! Won’t know the results though until August. I will contact you with my results. I really want to thank you for helping me.
I have really enjoyed this course and I think it is because you can actually see your own improvement through speed typing but also in the text production. Your advice has been invaluable.
I studied for the PA Diploma through Lewis Secretarial College and have been thoroughly supported throughout this. The course content is excellent and I now feel like I have developed the skills and knowledge to take on a much more demanding administration/secretarial position.
I would definitely recommend this college due to all the help and support I have received, and in the future would definitely use them again.

My name is Nicola Evans and I work in London as a Legal Secretary. I am currently studying towards the Executive Secretarial Diploma at level 3. I have found that both the tuition and services provided by Lewis College are first class. Tutors are always available to answer any questions and are with you every step of the way.
Nicola Evans, London - Executive Secretarial Course
I would like to say a big thank to you Penny and the rest of the staff at Lewis Secretarial and Computer College for their help and support during my course. I have studied the Text Production Diploma Level 3 and found that the course material was explained in a way that was easy to understand and follow. The instructions were very clear and I felt very confident that I could complete the course via distance learning. I was very impressed with the support I received via the email, my questions were always answered very quickly and course work was also delivered promptly so I did not have to wait to progress with the course.
When I started the course I was a legal secretary for a firm of solicitors in Newquay and since completing the course I have been given the opportunity to continue my studies within the firm and have been promoted to an assistant. I would certainly recommend the college and the distance learning courses to colleagues and friends.
Rebecca Webb, Cornwall - Level 3 Mail Merge and Text Processing
The college’s services were comprehensive and I decided on this course as I wanted to challenge myself academically and be better placed to apply for positions such as Medical Secretary. I registered my interest on-line with ease as their website was very informative and helpful. The course itself was both enjoyable and interesting learning all about the terminology of body structures, diseases and conditions and much more. I was delighted to have worked with Sally Shoolbraid who offered at all times the highest standards of tutoring and support which, I have no doubt, helped in my attaining a distinction in the exam.
Sarah Fahey, Northamptonshire - Medical Terminology
I wanted to gain a qualification in Office Administration as although I had been working in an office for some time I had no proper qualifications. I didn’t have time to do a course at a college so I decided to go for a distance learning course. I enrolled with Lewis College and I have been very pleased with them. They have helped me gain confidence and achieve passes in all the units of the Office Administration. They are always ready to help by answering questions and giving advice.
Fiona Gerdes-Hansen, Surrey - Administration
May I take this opportunity to state how impressed I am with the course. You always get back to me within the next working day and I have found your comments have helped me. Also on the occasion I was struggling and panicking you helped me calm down.
If you ever want me to speak to a prospective student who is not sure about taking the course, please feel free to give them my email address and I hope I will put their mind at rest and say how satisfied I am.
Helen Chorley, Wakefield, Yorkshire – Shorthand
I took the Secretarial and Computer course, I passed every exam which itself proves the excellent tuition and support I received throughout. As a Mum, being an on-line student was great, I studied at times convenient to me while still having time for family. I never felt I wasn’’t getting enough attention as an on-line student as my queries were answered quickly and clearly.
Tracey Rousell, Plymouth - Intermediate Secretarial and Computer Course
I can fully recommend studying on-line with Lewis College. I was able to study at my own pace and never felt under pressure to meet deadlines. I thought the one-to-one on-line tuition was much better than being taught in a classroom environment. The tutor was very helpful, supportive and knowledgeable.
Hanneke Grimes, Colchester - Level 3 Medical Terminology
I Started my new job and have been very very busy! I’m finally settled in to my job with a routine and have got the hang of things and really enjoying it. I am now a Sales Administrator and my courses combined (Text Processing, IT and Administration) are really helping me with my new job role. I am confident and feel I have the knowledge to complete tasks. I would like to really thank you for all your help with these courses as I received my new job through completing these courses – Management have taken me more seriously!!
