“Thoroughly enjoyed the course and preferred being able to complete workshops from home rather then going into London for them (due to Covid-19).” Mark Vince

“Good session and was lots of interactive / group work which made it more relatable.” Amy Rothwell

“Joseph was excellent, good pace and the breakout room function was very useful and allowed smaller discussions to take place. He made sure that any questions were answered and kept engagement up by asking direct questions to individuals.” Zoe Sullivan

“Fantastic delivery – really clear explanations and great opportunity to understand the components of what we were learning. A day long Zoom course sounds hard going but actually the way that it was broken up and our chance to participate made it really enjoyable!” Lisa Milne
