    The support I received from Ray between the training weekend and the final assessment was superb. When I eventually passed the assessment I felt confident and ready to do so. People will take part in the original weekend for a number of reasons but for those who wish to I recommend completing the assessment 100% – the L2 is equivalent to a top grade GCSE.

  2. Timothy Hill

    I went on the NCFE level two course, the weekend was amazing. You learn a lot before the course and it really makes you focus on building up your knowledge and practice before you decide to take the course and attemp to pass.
    The instructors are really patient with you, all very knowledable. They never push you, force you and always give you time to breath.
    I would and have recommended this course to anyone who wishing to ether get an understanding and enjoy somthing new or to presue further and build the ranks of doing your own class’s. Be looking foward to going back.
