I thought the tutor was excellent. There were lots of interactive tasks and I felt engaged at all times. Kieran Connolly, London Sport
Many of us do this kind of work on a daily basis but don't appreciate where it fits in with the theory and tools. It was so useful to formalise my on the job learning and I will feel more confident delivering projects in the future. Ruby Bayley-Pratt, MS Society
