Mike Roberts, Learning & Development Manager, Culina Logistics

Just wanted to say on behalf of all apprentices current and past, you have been an absolutely amazing tutor throughout our NVQ's and we will all dearly miss you!

Jayce Clack, HR Administration Team Leader, Culina Logistics

The tutor explained everything very thoroughly with well defined presentations and handouts, all in all a very professional course and would gladly enrol in a similar course to benefit both myself and the company.

...bespoke Excel training to our board directors, managers and administrators, all of whom took on valuable new skills and are using Excel with confidence for the first time. Stuart's delivery is patient and perfectly paced; no one was left behind and all of us were challenged.

Charlotte Brook, HR Executive, Morris & Co Ltd

Once Stuart explained how Excel worked it all came clear and we have never looked back, saving lots of time and effort.
I can thoroughly recommend Stuart to help you learn more about Microsoft programs.
