    great course content

  5. Natalie Scott

    I have found the course content varied in it’s delivery. Anytime I hae an issue or a question the course tutors have been very accessible and helpful. I would recommend this style and elivery of study to anyone thinking of furthering their study especially as you can work at your own pace.

  6. Christopher Facey

    Course content is good so far need more courses readily available and interactive content would be more engaging. Terminology used shouldn’t be big deal and discussions on tops should be via email not assessment as you can only resubmit a limited time. Tutors great

  7. Jasmine Donohur

    Rubbish, wish I didn’t join the career academy, overpriced and don’t clarify nothing would give no starts if i could.
