What people say …
My assessor should be given great praise as I was very reluctant to do this award as education was not something I enjoyed. His constant help, skills and obvious talent and love of what he does has earned him my and everyone I spoke to the utmost respect and admiration.
I was impressed by the style of training. The lecturer was easy to understand.
A very rewarding experience which made me want to learn more. Assessor was excellent, explained everything clearly in easy to understand terms when some questions appeard complicated. Doing my award has made me much more informative to others. I have gained skills, knowledge and awareness of procedures, protocols and practice.
Medication Training – Very relaxed but very informative.
I enjoyed working with my assessor, I found her approachable and very supportive. She encouraged me through my low points and the times I felt overwhelmed with work, which was often! I liked that she was always positive and pointed out how far I had come and what I’d achieved and this undoubtedly helped me focus and get through.
This was the most difficult, intense and exhausting qualification I have ever undertaken. My assessor was brilliant in explaining what was required of me. He reassured me when I was struggling to push on. He got the best out of me. The measure of a good assessor is one who can encourage you to go a little bit further in thought, detail and boost morale. The best there is.
I was supported really well considering the distance that my assessor had to travel to meet up. My assessor explained everything to me in a way I could understand. It has been a while since I did any exam type work and she always made me feel very capable and always had praise for my work. It will help with all aspects of my work and give me more understanding to paper work systems and rules and regulations.
