Hi guys,

I really enjoyed the course, was really valuable in preparing me for the next steps of my journey! You delivered it in such a great way - I thought it was gonna be a bit nerve wracking presenting, but you guys made it so much more relaxed for me.

Hi Courtney and Ian,
Thank you very much for all of your work and support over these last few days, the course has been very interesting and insightful. I wanted to take the time to give feedback as I’ve enjoyed the course.

Ian was my assessor throughout the NVQ part of my apprenticeship. He was always approachable and knowledgeable making the learning experience pleasurable and efficient.

The course itself was enlightening and well put together.

Ian or Paul were always available by txt or call to help and advise me until I completed my apprenticeship.
