Don't just take our word for it, here's some feedback from people who have attended.

“A very informative seminar that has given us lots to consider when we have to make the decision for Sept 16 intake.  As an ex-primary school teacher I felt that I had covered all of the points to consider in my head but there were more things discussed tonight that I hadn't thought of.  I want to thank you for putting together this webinar, a very useful hour was had!”

 "That was the first time I’ve done a webinar like that, I thought it was very useful and very well done. The content of the presentation was useful and easy to follow and it was very easy to log in and use from a technical point of view too. It was really good to be able to log in from home to access this kind of support, it’s not always easy to get out to attend courses in the evening but the timing and length of the session was ideal."
