Laura's Story - Psychology course


I am starting a degree in Criminology, thanks in part to the wonderful course you ran! I was all up and keen for taking more of your courses until I got my acceptance for the degree course so I am sad to be missing learning with you! I've thought about doing this degree for a while and your course really gave me the kick to realise that it is something I should do and I'm hoping to come out the other side and work in Justice. So here's a huge thank you to you, your course was so wonderful and informative and really spurred me on! "

Katrina's story – Flower Arranging course


It has given me the inspiration and ideas for doing something I love. I thought I was signing up to a ten-week course to distract myself and do something for me. I did the ten weeks, then I did part 2 and now I’m booked up on part 3 and the Wedding Flowers workshop course. The course tutor is amazing. Informative, knowledgeable, inspiring and supportive. As well as doing something for me, where I can kind of lose myself and forget everything, I have now set up a small little business. "

Caryl's story - British Sign Language course


The lessons themselves have been great fun, which I think is what learning should be about. Nobody was afraid to try, and everyone was able to take part. It has been useful in lots of ways. If anyone is thinking of doing it, just do it! ’’
