  • Teaching Assistant Level 2 course was great and so was the support and learning school. I applied for the job before completeting the course and lucky enough to get one. They offered good encouragement to their students.

  • This was perfect for me, as I was in full-time employment and I found it impossible to complete this course at College; The Colleges weren't flexible for working people. I was able to complete this at the comfort of my home and at my own speed. The other benefit was I completed this course before those who did the course via College. If you are self-motivated this is right for you, plus you have support available when/if needed.
