What our students say

Really enjoyed the course which I took as a Saturday delegate. The venue was lovely and the days were well structured with plenty of learning from professionals in the particular subject and regular breaks with lovely food!!!

CIM Saturday Seminar Student

I am really enjoying it and I am finding the Learning Zone engaging. I look forward to the catch ups with my tutor. All is very relevant. It doesn't feel like work because I am enjoying it. It's not easy but it's enjoyable and I am passionate about communications.

Seb A. Apprentice PR and Communications Assistant, EKC

Thank you for an excellent seminar on Saturday - I thoroughly enjoyed it and, importantly, found it extremely useful with plenty to take away and start implementing immediately.

Digital Saturday Seminar Student

Really good and really interesting having an academic perspective. I am Enjoying that there are lots of different theories. The Online Learning Zone is easy to use. At the beginning, I used to study on Fridays but this didn’t work because people were off, so Fridays were really busy. Now I am booking the study time in meeting rooms and it is much better!

Charlotte E Apprentice PR and communications Assistant, Fareham Borough Council

It is really interesting. I don’t have formal training so all the theory is really useful. The Learning Zone is easy to use and easy to navigate in. It’s all interesting. I’m not a reader, so love the videos and doing things. I like talking through with my tutor because he has a different perspective.

Alice W Apprentice PR and communications Assistant, EI Group

Really positive and really beneficial. I have been able to put into practice on a daily basis.

Danielle G Apprentice Marketing Executive, Coventry City Council
