Comments from previous course participants:

"I love that we are encouraged to be in touch and have access to tutorials. It was a very interactive and enjoyable course."

"Have really enjoyed the course. Go back to work with a clearer picture in my head about teaching signs and using a total communication approach in my work"

I really enjoyed this course and I looked forward to each day. I gained a significant amount of knowledge.

The course was excellently presented. The Tutors were very approachable, responsive and eager to give everyone as much help and support as required. The group were great - offering advice and support, ideas etc. to each other.
