This is brilliant I couldn't of had a better course to do having the videos as well help so much

Ellis Gardiner

This course is incredibly helpful and easy to understand to start off a career in event planning. The case studies give you an insight into the real world of this role and not just the "shiny exterior". I'm loving this course and cannot wait to use the knowledge that I have gained in the [hopefully not so distant] future!

Leanne Dormer

This is an amazing course. Easy to follow and understand.

I am working with children already and I wanted to do a SEN course to extend my knowledge and able to work with a wide range of children including those with special needs. This course has twice the modules as an average SEN course, so it provides great knowledge in the subject. And this is perfect as it’s CPD accredited course. And the price was just unbelievable!!

The course has email tutor support and lifetime access to the course material which is brilliant for a mum, who is working currently as a volunteer to gain work experience.

Andrea Piesiur

Amazing course, great for people that never have time to go to college or evening classes. So easy to complete online and step by step instructions to help you. Will definitely be doing another course after this.

I’m starting my own business and this course will help me get started as it states all the things I need to know and to be aware of. I can’t wait until I have completed this as this will be a new chapter in my life. You have no time limit on this course which is great as I have a very busy life but this course gives you no pressure.

Would recommend this to anyone.

Megan Atkins

I love the course very straight forward. Would love to know if there are any more courses available like this for advancement. Everything is clearly explained and if you get in trouble there is a helpline you can call. There should be more courses like this available online to benefit those people that want to go to work in their chosen field but are unable to pay for a program at college or else where. Well done and thank you for allowing me to pursue my interest and hopefully a career at the end of my studying.

Jo Debbage-lodge

This course thoroughly improved my knowledge of Microsoft Outlook. I found the modules on meetings, appointments and tasks the most informative. I’m sure these will all have a direct impact on my day to day working life.

If you do not already have a basic understanding of Outlook then the first few modules in particular will be very helpful to you as they cover the fundamentals extremely well.
There is also more advanced options for those who are at that level.

The course is very easy to follow, the tutorial videos are extremely well put together and you can learn at your own pace.
