I signed up for this course a afew months back. I’m hoping to finish the 2nd unit tonight. The course itself is very thorough and interesting. Would highly recommend this course and Association of Learning

Having worked with children for a few years, I wanted to do something new and exciting so decided to enrol on this course. It is the best decision I ever made, working with children but also understanding them makes it even more exciting (it makes you feel like you know something the person who is with you doesn’t). Highly and definitely recommended to anyone, even if you haven’t started working with children yet.
