I really enjoyed this Programme. The Course Content was thorough, detailed and related to the Industry I had worked in previously and am currently teaching. To be able to study alongside other employees working in the industry, we were able to discuss various topics, share ideas and our prior knowledge on the different topics. The individual assessments were easy to comprehend, utilising our Tutor delivery, research, our workbooks and discussion in class.
