    I found it really helpful to help clarify the areas I was confused about, but also to help build confidence. I need to practice all the things I’ve learnt but I feel this has given me a strong foundation to begin.
    I started this course with minimal confidence in my writing, but I am now confident that with all I have learnt over the course, I have great potential. Hannah
    Very useful and clear, easy to understand. Ready to implement into my work.
