Success Story

Emma Dyson

I was a bit sceptical at first as this was the first course I’d done that was solely online. This was just something to do during lockdown – it came at the perfect time. Lockdown started then I got a different job role at my work. I thought about it just as something that I could potentially use in the future. It’s actually come in perfect!

"I’ve found it really informative and also challenging. At times there have been some parts that I’ve struggled with but I’ve been able to find the answers from the class or the information that’s posted from the tutor in the teams' area. Gladys is a true gem, her knowledge of the industry is second to none and knows her stuff. She’s understanding of everyone’s different lives, struggles and jobs - and helps where she can. Between the people who were on the course at the start, we were in an array of jobs and locations so we all were doing something different. I’ve learnt a lot more than just the course from Gladys. She talks with such passion it’s amazing to see. I would highly recommend this course. I can’t fault this course one bit!"
