Comments From Previous Attendees

I think the lessons learned from the module have been invaluable and will be applied on a daily basis. I have extended my knowledge a huge amount and it is also extremely useful to have the slides to refer back to when I need to jog my memory, particularly when dealing with matters which I have little experience with.

Amanda Hopkins
Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council

I definitely have greater confidence in my role as a direct result of the first module. Having spent 5 months in the role I gained basic practical information however the first module has consolidated that and given me an extensive knowledge in which to carry forward into my every day role.

Clare Milner
South Kesteven District Council

I have been able to contribute more to the discussion following the identification of a breach and deciding the appropriate action to be taken. The more understanding and knowledge I gain the more confident I become, dealing with both the public and the internal decision making process.

Deborah Scales
Uttlesford District Council

The discussions in class helped me understand the subjects covered as students were applying subject matter to real life case studies.
