Samone (2016 participant) -  "I’ve learnt so much from the tutors, guest speakers as well as the other students. It’s been a dual learning experience, lovely to bounce ideas off people and listen to other life experiences".

Kat (2016 participant) - " When I saw the course in the paper, the thing that drew me to it was 'getting back into the workforce'. I dropped in to see what it was about and the atmosphere of the place and the people I met made we want to stay.
