It was very well taught – I particularly liked the way the day was broken into 20 minute segments so I moved onto different tasks regularly. I liked the fact that I was taught in such a small group with lots of one-on-one time with the tutors. It was a good learning environment – good equipment provided. The accommodation was also great and very convenient.
