Feedback from Carly's previous AELP workshop

'Carly, the trainer was excellent. She was well informed and extremely knowledgeable and related much of what we were learning to our adult learners which was very relevant. Carly paced the sessions really well, giving people a chance to feedback without going off on tangents which is so often the case in training. It isn't easy to keep training engaging online, but Carly managed it.'

'Good opportunities to comment and take an active role in the course.'

'Really useful refresher and looking at the most up to date changes. It has given me lots of documents to go away and read which is great - thank you enjoyed both days'​
