5 + 6 =

Before starting this course it had been over 6 years since my previous course of any significance when I completed a Diploma in Welfare. As a result I did initially find it difficult to get back into a structured routine required when studying by distant learning.

I selected this method of study because of the flexibility it afforded me because I could not fit a college course programme into my work routine.

Having made a large step up to senior management in my organisation I felt the need to increase my knowledge base in certain areas, refresh some of my skills, and increase my confidence in the area of strategic management.

My organisation is now going through a massive period of change and having completed the assignments on a wide range of subjects I feel better equipped to carry this forward with a greater understanding, awareness and confidence.

I found my tutor most knowledgeable and always willing to offer sound advice when asked for. As a result I will certainly use this method of study again and when I do Blueprint Education and Training Services will be my first port of call.
