Amy Hallgat
3.0 01/03/2017
What I would highlight: Good workshop, nice tutor
What could be improved: Too many students and course was teaching 2 different levels and so 2 different groups at the same time. Very little time with tutor and as she was having to demenstrate different things to different groups in the class you were left waiting around for lots of time with little instruction.

What I would highlight: There is a lot of consideration at Havering College between the students and the teachers, they are so dedicated and friendly, help was always there whenever I needed it. I think that it is the attentive selection of staff that make the college so special as they are extremely gifted and have so much time for you, they are passionate and so knowledgeable about their subjects and most have had very professional careers prior to teaching.
What could be improved: Nothing bad.
