What They Say About Us…

I found the tutor made an immediate impact as our ILM trainer. They were informative and straight to the point and also made sure that as individuals we all knew where we were in terms of assignments and deadlines. This was very helpful as it gave us a structure to work from. Since then the tutor has been very prompt to reply to any queries and give us feedback on assignments. I have found the tutor very approachable and helpful which is exactly what I am looking for in a trainer.
