"I am a support worker for adults with disabilities and this course has helped me greatly and will continue to do so in my working life. It has given me greater knowledge and understanding. The style of teaching has been so different this year with online learning, but the tutors are doing an amazing job in such difficult circumstances. Although it's not the same as classroom teaching, I feel the support is there just in a different way. To anyone thinking about doing this course, I would say go for it!”
