Love my course and can’t fault it at all. All my teachers are great at their jobs and I enjoy the way we learn. They have been so helpful with me and understand me, supporting me through difficult circumstances.
I love the course and wouldn’t change it for the world. I really love working with all of the different animals, particularly Zeus the chameleon and all of the rabbits and guinea pigs in the small mammal house!
