“I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learned a lot. Colin is an excellent instructor: I like his teaching style, very friendly and laid back but very informative and to the point. Good value for money!”
James, City and Guilds Level 2 Participant
“I really enjoyed this course and learned so many of the things I wanted to. I genuinely couldn’t wait to get to the centre each day and was sad when it finished. There was good support and camaraderie from the other participants. Receiving a copy of the Big Blue book was much appreciated and provides excellent detail to work through outside the course.”
