“Everyone who participated on the course felt that they really benefitted from improving and developing their skills. The course was delivered in a very accessible and supportive way, meaning that it was easy to ask questions, recap where necessary and deal with individual queries. It’s always hard to find the time away from desks for additional training but I know that we all felt this to be worthwhile -and enjoyable!”
