The course helped me to refocus with the disciplines of my job roles
Course was well run and requirements were well explained by Mark. Once I had got to grips with the phone app and website, evidence was very easy to upload, describe and add to my portfolio. The whole course fitted in well around my (sometimes) extremely busy day to day diary, and Mark was great help in changing appointments when things became too busy.
David, my assessor, was great. He was always available on the phone and scheduled visits to complete on site assessments at convenient times. Due to his commitment and assistance to my learning I was able to complete the course relatively quickly. Working with David made my course easier but generally the entire course was well supported and well defined. I want to wish David all the best and thank him for the support.
