“Has been an amazing experience and as i hadn’t been in education for some time when i started i was very nervous. The course material was fantastic but also gave me the opportunity to out source for information which really made me think about the subject. My child psychology diploma is a fantastic thing for me and i definitely would do another course. The staff are on hand at all times to give you support and i found the whole experience amazing” Lynda P
