"I like the variety my role brings, the people I work with, the genuine dedication of the ITO to make a positive impact on learners, and the support the ITO has provided me in my short time here."

Wikeepa Rewharewha, Quality Adviser

"Working as a Training Adviser for Primary ITO means working with a fantastic group of people.  It’s incredibly rewarding seeing people progress their careers through the completion of our qualifications and supporting them through that journey is really satisfying.

It’s also great working for a company that actively encourages and supports the professional development of its staff."
