    She is great and I would recommend her to anyone

    Debra Lee, WEETU

  • Congratulations on the huge success of your contribution to adult learning and learners in Norfolk.
  • Before this course, we thought we were teachers. Now we can better inspire others to learn.
  • My tutor was excellent. Always at the end of an e-mail or phone to help support me through my NVQ4. She was clear in what she expected to see and made it easier for me to put my folder together
  • I had been working on a course for 18 months and had lost interest and motivation. Trish took over, discarded the unnecessary, made sense of the necessary and helped me to the light at the end of the tunnel.
