Attendee Comments


A measure of the success of a course comes from the feedback given by those who attend it. Underpinning most of our courses is a highly practical experience which not only secures the new learning but serves to make the experience worthwhile, stimulating and enjoyable for everyone. Below is a small selection of comments taken from a cross section of completed evaluation forms for all courses (all available for viewing). Please read through the comments. They provide a valuable insight into the teaching methods:

  • 'I loved this course. It was really fun, useful and has given me SQL confidence. I feel I can write a script without tweaking someone else's. I also have a good method of working and will try to remember all of the tutor's tips! Brilliant. Can you come back please? '

However, I have learnt a great deal over the past three days and with the materials I have to take away with me, I am confident that I will be able to continue developing key skills.'

  • 'This is the first SQL course I've been on where the teaching format has not been the traditional trainer at the front of the class and I've got so much more out the two days. The format of this training course (where you do you the work yourself and have the tutor to assist where necessary) is really good.
