The great thing about the courses I have taken was the Tutors who were fantastic, it didn’t feel like I was back at school.



The most important thing is that I have found a new confidence in myself and I feel proud of what I have achieved. Not only have I found my dream job, I now also have a career.



Having the Free Creche for my children has been great. It allowed me to attend training courses and gain valuable qualifications.
