Course Reviews

I enjoyed my training with StayAhead. The training centre was easy to find and reach. Very close to a bus stop and underground station. The course content was up to date and had enough workshop materials for practice. The instructors were highly experienced with loads of practical and relevant knowledge. They were very open minded and had great answers to all the questions that I brought with me. Class size was small enough for the instructor to have time and attention for trainee. StayAhead is a place I would choose over and over again.

Course very useful and worth coming on.

As always, course delivered really well with very relevant information to our company needs. The trainer was quick to research real life questions and examples and was a big help with guidance and information relevant to work we are doing shortly.

The course was very good - this was the second part of an Administration course and enabled me to expand on the knowledge I had gained from the previous course.
