Some recent comments about our training from students:

The best, most informative, training I have ever attended. (Been in Health & Social Care for nearly 20 years - so attended enough to know!)

This has been one of the most interesting and informative courses (Diploma Course) I have attended. All the information is essential to my role and will be of great benefit in progressing my career

Excellent training course. I would definitely recommend to anyone. Reasonably priced, too. Location great. There should be more than one!

Fantastic! (the trainers) make the Course fun, interactive and interesting.  Probably one of the best courses I have attended in 22 years of healthcare and lots of different courses.  Thank you ladies.

Didn't feel like I was in a normal learning environment.  The delivery of the course was excellent.

Amazingly taught - very easy to understand.  Seemed to take things in better than previous courses - lovely atmosphere.  Nice to have someone actually teach rather than relying on PowerPoint for everything!
