  1. Alex Brisbon

    The course has filled in a lot of gaps in my knowledge when it comes to understanding the “why’s” and the “what’s” . The tutor is honest and gives practical advice that I can relate to from my own work experiences.

  2. Tom Hussain

    I am quite satisfied with the dedicated tutor support. Looking forward to starting another competence-based qualification with the School of Academics!

  3. Isobel Wilkins

    I had my assignments reverted back like a gazillion times until I was able to satisfy their rigorous needs. It’s a bit of pain, but worth it.

  4. Jodie Bolton

    I’m doing the L5 Diploma in E&T and so far, I am satisfied with the tutor support. I’ve been consistently getting 24/7 support to my queries and prompt feedback on my assignments. I’m hoping to complete it quickly.

  5. Jayden Higgins

    It’s been going smooth so far in this course and I hope to complete it soon with the tutor’s help.

  6. Daisy Giles

    Relieved to have completed the course with good tutor support. Flexible instalment plan was the key to completing the course successfully.

  7. Zara Mitchell

    Glad to have received the certificate so quickly and without compromising on the quality learning. Understanding the requirements was a bit tricky though.
