Testimonials

Sue Jones, Head of Business, Notre Dame Catholic Sixth Form College:
"The sessions were tailor-made to suit the needs of the Business course that the students were studying, this included sessions on recruitment and selection and marketing. All of the information and materials provided were very relevant to the course and provided students with the opportunity to achieve a greater understanding of the topics.

The external moderator for the course has commented on the depth and quality of the information gathered by the students.

In summary I have used the Visitor Centre at Brockhole for a number of years and have always found the staff to be extremely helpful and more than willing to assist the students and myself."
