"I will really miss my college days and from the beginning the tutor, Al, has been so supportive. From someone who has not completed anything academic in over 20 years, this course was a step in the right direction for me. I have learnt so much from the group of people, different organisations, but mostly from Al who has a wealth of HR knowledge. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Al and she will always go out of her way to support and guide you in the right direction".
