Testimonials

“The course built well on the foundations of the bronze award. The ttor took a period to
observe and assess the level of the group before focusing on the areas of learning that would
help us develop. The delivery of the learning was smooth and catered for different learning
styles, abilities and pace of learning. The excellent practical exercises strongly reinforced all
the prior theoretical learning and I feel I personally gained invaluable experience by working
under an experienced eye and receiving very relevant feedback on performance”
