I have enjoyed the NVQ as it has also aided my daily work and added to my current experience to enable me to be more thorough with my work as an Assistant Site Manager. This will assist me in my future as I progress.

The course overall was good. Paul was a good mentor and always on hand to help and advise. Subjects covered were relevant to the job.

Very well organised and supportive course. Liam has been great - always at the end of a phone to help with any questions.

The assessor was very professional throughout and allowed me to develop valuable knowledge and insight to help me progress through my NVQ.

Tom was very helpful and gave me good guidance on how to answer the questions.
