It’s a very welcoming, relaxed environment that makes learning easy and stress free. All the tutors are amazing to work with and go out of their way to help you. I did a 2 year part-time course. The things that stood out for me were the overall support from the teachers and my class mates. I have worked in a hospital as a healthcare assistant since completing the course.
