Course reviews

A well-delivered course. The tutor was approachable and knowledgeable in her delivery. I now feel more confident in my role, keeping children and myself safe.

Vital for meds knowledge. It has given me the confidence to administer meds safely. Very valuable training. 

Thank you – you made it very easy to ask questions as we went along. Easy-going and informative at the same time.

I would say it’s a very good,  in-depth course. I will be recommending it to my old workplace as they will benefit a huge amount from it.  I will use and remember everything I have learned for as long as I administer any kind of medication. Thank you!

Sarah Williams, Prior's Court School

A very informative course, well organised and hand outs well laid out. Good examples of record sheets and information packs to take away and look back on.

Alicia Chipping, Central Sussex College

It’s really easy for new starters who are coming into care of any environment or just to learn something new and gain new knowledge of some day to day things you wouldn’t really think twice about.
