What They Say About Us…

I have been completing my Level 3 Health & Social Care qualification with Encompass. During this time I have required support and motivation that have always been provided by my assessor with no hesitation or judgement. The experience I have had with my assessor has inspired me to enroll onto the assessor qualification myself. I can’t thank or recommend my assessor and Encompass enough..
