"This course is superb. Over the past two years I have learned more and benefitted more from this course than all others put together. Teaching is incredibly effective; well balanced, interactive, well considered and well delivered. The content is fascinating. The skills which are gained are priceless, and have greatly enhanced my employability - the COSCA certified qualification is an excellent demonstration of my skills, and one which employers have been impressed with at recent interviews. I would greatly encourage further advertisement of this course, because it could make the world of difference to many students."
