I enjoyed the PDE course a lot. I learned how to make a detailed CV and cover letter, effective communication skills and how best to prepare for interviews, including what questions to ask. I was more than impressed with the course tutor Scott Flinton, he was helpful, laid back and helped explain everything in a clear and easy to understand way. I would and have recommended both the course and tutor.

At the start of the course I felt really nervous and didn't really have the confidence to meet new people and focos on work , once the course started and I met a few people I relaxed more and could get on really well in the group , Suzanne really brought out the best in me and helped me to gain confidences to learn more .

I was very anxious about attending the course, Suzanne is a warm and positive tutor, making each day more enjoyable than the last. My confidence when attending the last day is far greater than the first. I feel more self aware and confident in my abilities.
