It was a nice experience and the tutors were so helpful, and it worked for me, so I didn’t shop around. They were my first choice.
The qualification was really important to me. To me, it wasn’t so much about progressing and becoming an HR Director. It was because I never went to University and never had a degree, so it was more about my self belief, and I have gained that. I know I can do it, I’ve done it well.Karen Coulson
