"I have recently completed my Teachers Aide (Advanced) certificate and I would like to acknowledge the wonderful support team. I would like to thank Lisa and Susan for their guidance, lovely friendly voices on the phone and their passion and dedication to see me succeed. The girls are very easy to talk with and gave me lots of advice and confidence to finish along the way. Their professionalism and constant contact with me via email and phone gave me the necessary tasks to complete my course with easy to follow instructions. I'm certainly glad I asked!" - Kristy
