“The Tutor was very clear and spoke well to keep the group fully engaged with the whole day in both group and individual tasks which were explained to the highest level. Both practical and written situations were given throughout the day and the Tutor made sure we were doing everything correct and if not he challenged us when required.
Extremely good value for money.”
