Great working team and opportunities offered. Management are enthusiastic and inspiring with their innovative passion. Looked after by the company with expenses and benefits. My own path way has been created to suit my needs most.

Low support as too much work load on their part. Work to be completed and handed in was rushed at the end of the programme.
