Dear Andrew, I have finally made it to the end of the school year and with that I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for ALL the help and support that you have given me! I am always grateful for your time and sometimes feel I would be lost without you!!
Thank you Andrew; it’s a pleasure working with you. You’ve been friendly, supportive and always willing to find a solution for us. You’re a star!
I meant to email you today to say how happy I was with Andrew's support on Monday. Everything I asked for was possible and completed. There was no moan, no fuss, no impossible thing. Andrew made our training day successful and complete. His patience was tremendous.
Our relationship with Toucan is always very professional. As a company their values match with ours. The apprenticeship scheme they offer is excellent and gives us ICT support whilst investing in a young person's future career prospects.
Julian's training was excellent. Staff were really engaged and motivated. We'll book him again!
Can I just say a big thank you to Gareth for the work he undertook at this week and the assistance he gave to our engineer Antony. Antony had nothing but good words to say about Gareth, his professionalism, work ethic and ability to train on the job. Antony feels the install was a great success and is now much more confident in managing this solution for the school going forward.
I have just got back from a very valuable morning at Heronsgate which has been immensely helpful. Thanks very much for facilitating this. Your advice is much appreciated.
I have every confidence to say that working with Toucan and Julian everything is possible. It's really pleasing to see how with you guys (all of Toucan) our school is turning into a completely different technology led school. Well done to everyone.
I'd love to thank you for all the support and help you provided during your visit on Wednesday.
Thanks again for your years of continued support and expert advice, it means a lot to us that we can always trust on you to provide nothing less than the best!. You always go the extra mile and I appreciate that.
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for your help with sorting out the iPads and setting them up. Gareth did a brilliant job with no fuss. I was really pleased and appreciated not being needed while teaching. I will be strongly recommending you to any other schools looking to get iPads.
Thanks so much for sending Andy in today. He was an absolute trooper and slogged away all day at getting us back online. It didn’t take knowledge alone; a lot of creative thinking and determination was required. I was very impressed.
