Course Reviews

  • Diploma in Sport Management

    Sports Management course as CPD 4

    I work in sports development and wanted to do some CPD as it had been a while since I last went on a course or did any development work. The content seems good, a few spelling mistakes which was odd. But the content is easily accessible and easy to download. I did this over a few days while at work and the mock exam gave me a much better idea of what types of questions are asked. I'd say it's a good introduction to it all.

  • Certificate in Nursery Assistant – Level 3

    NURSERY ASSISTANT - LEVEL 3 5

    Really well laid out on-line and easy to follow once you know how. I have really enjoyed doing this course on-line as and when I can around my own older children. And will be looking to add to this course achievement with 'Study 365' with the next level up hopefully. Mrs Jayne Eagle, Harmston, Lincolnshire
