    I would really recommend this course. It was extremely thorough with excellent support and guidance from Fran and Neil, the course instructors, who had a high level of experience. It left me feeling well prepared to start teaching. Also, the training centre was a very friendly environment in which to do the course, with everything you needed to prepare lessons and a reasonable library for additional study when needed.
