What I would highlight The course was very disappointing. There are not many things I could say I like. Two of the lecturers Rachel and Sian doing the visits made the effort. Got lesson plans together and online material. The library is good, with knowledgeable staff.

What could be improved I am used to doing degree level, and hound a lot of this was taught at less than GCSE grade. The course is overpriced with having hardly any visits out to the workplace, and most lecturers not being able to teach or control the class. The facilities are run down, and not many of them. They should help arrange a range of work experiences. I think I would have done better at teaching the classes myself!

Would you recommend this course? No.
Did this opinion help you? Yes (0)
