Don't just take our word for it, here is what our staff think


I did my course years ago. It was classroom based one night per week. I think I would prefer to be more ‘hands on’ like it is now. Cavity really are a great company to work for. I truly believe that there expertise will ensure the next generation are amazing!


I did mine over an apprenticeship but the company my employer used wasn’t great and I didn’t get much support. Although I passed I can only imagine the length that Cavity have gone to to ensure that the students feel supported. As an employee, its super!
