Student Comment

The course overall was brilliant, I enjoyed it and completed with a merit. I met a lot of new people who I got along with. There was so much morale in the class because our tutor Steve Biggin encouraged us to do our best and be proud of ourselves. There was a lot of support from the staff who all put effort into making sure we got through different sections of the course. It’s been a great year and I have found a job so I wish my friends from the course, new starters and the tutors the best of luck.
