Will surely recommend to my colleagues

Excellent staff, knowledgable and approachable. Everyone was so encouraging and helpful, knowing exactly what scenario to give to candidates. Made each topic interesting and I appreciated that they used their own experiences to create learning points.

Excellent training

This weekend was a great opportunity to gain feedback on teaching in a safe environment. It was excellent preparation for becoming an instructor candidate, and I’m sure will improve the quality of my day-to-day teaching on the ward.
