“I actually learnt a lot about good practice and policies and enjoyed writting about the different units. It helped me a lot to build my confidence and be more aware of my skills and progress. I have just completed my course with Training for Care (Edinburgh) and I am so pleased, my tutor Sarah helped me a lot as I have been through a rough time this year. I am so grateful. I used Modern Apprentiship which I think is great to manage while working full time. I like a lot that is not about just the theory, I could write from personal experience and using my own words. Definitely would recommend TFC Edinburgh. Thanks, Ana
