Central government sector - testimonials

Below are 23 testimonials we've received from training courses for companies in the Central government sector.

"Well structured, learned a lot. The trainer was very approachable in terms of questions and put in extra effort to hunt down answers to tricky problems. The lunches were also a nice touch, better than the usual packs of sandwiches you are given. Will definitely be applying a lot of what I learnt to my day-to-day work. The Wise Owl course seemed one of the few to take the learning beyond the real basics to intermediate level."

James Gallucci

"The course (Writing SQL) was well paced and covered the basics, plus a lot more besides."

Martyn Dawes

National Maritime Museum

"Incredibly useful to have a detailed manual to take away. Course covered everything I need to know to be able to go away and continue learning. The trainer was enthusiastic and very helpful."

Maddy Gorka

Department for Education

"The course was very good and relevant to what I will be doing at work going forward. Trainer was excellent and pace was just right. The manual we got was also very good with good examples and diagrams to refer back to. It was also a nice change to go out for lunch rather than a buffet. Overall, it was one of the best courses I’ve been on. "

Stephen Robson

"Manuals are very useful to take away to refresh. Course was well paced and the trainer very understanding."

"Great course and pacing. Covered a lot of content in 2 days which was helped by a preset database and helpful course material. I feel I've learned a lot more that I expected. Also the hospitality has been great and it is a nice learning environment."
