Testimonials

Nottingham City Transport Ltd has been sending employees to the Council's Pre-Retirement Course for a number of years as part of its policy of helping them to make what can be a profound change from the world of work to retirement. Feedback from what is by now a large number of delegates has been without exception excellent. They all speak highly of the comprehensive range of the programme, which covers both financial and lifestyle issues and of the expertise and approachability of the Course Directors and facilitators/presenters. The course has become an essential part of the company's offer to employees. Nottingham City Transport Limited
