“One of the best things about my studies is the teaching staff – they’re patient, supportive and they make the classes interactive. They also bring expertise from industry, so they aren’t just technically able but have the practical background to show how what they’re teaching applies to the real world.”
“The skills I’m learning in class are having a direct impact on my job – for example, I’ve developed a marketing plan for the delivery of a nursery education grant programme which covers a range of local communication channels in London, so I’m already seeing benefits in my day-to-day work thanks to the course.”
