Ros Jeffs

Connexions Northamptonshire

"Very clear and pertinent manual, which will be used later. The trainer checked that content and speed of course was OK, which was good to do."

Angela Moore

Stephenson College

"I did very much enjoy the course. The pace was good and there was plenty of opportunity to ask questions. I was slightly worried beforehand that I may be in the minority and there would be many things that I wouldn’t understand, but the group meant that this wasn’t a problem. I now need to have time to practice what I’ve learnt! Lunch in a restaurant was good too, it made a good break in the day to clear the mind for the afternoon session. Many thanks for all your help. I will certainly bear you in mind for any further training we may need. "

Ginny Lefebvre
