“The Course was pretty intense at first but once you got to grips with the material and read the questions properly it was quite straightforward. I actually completed my final module about 4 – 5 weeks ahead of schedule. The feedback and support from the tutor was also a really good help. I enjoyed the course & would love to do another. Thank you URTU Learning and the Skills Network”
“It’s been great to able to do a course I was interested in doing, and free of charge. The team leader course was full of really useful information which has helped me in my work and personal life. I have now started another course on understanding challenging behaviour. It’s based on social care as a vocation but can be translated into everyday life. This has been a real eye opener as it explains that there is always a reason, and what they are, behind people’s actions and behaviour”
“Home learning with Leicester College has been great, the tutors are excellent and helpful and the courses are engaging. I have passed Understanding Nutrition and Health & Principles of Team Leading and I am also waiting on my pass Mark for Principles of Business Administration”
