I took introduction to programming and despite not being a complete beginner - who the course is designed for - I still picked up some useful knowledge and it helped me understand the basicis better.

Alan was very patient with going through methods. This built my confidence enough that by day 3 I was confidently writing basic script.
Becky - September 2021
Loved the course and Alan did splendidly running it! Thank you for the experience!
Charles - Software Test Apprentice - July 2021
I really enjoyed the course content. As someone familiar to programming already it was still very challenging if you pick a new language. Overall a great way to recap or learn the basics! Alan was very insightful and taught a good pace (as well as being quite funny)

I have really enjoyed these past few days, this course has been really helpful for me as I will be using programming in my apprenticeship role. I want to say thank you to Alan for being really helpful when I needed him. I also think he explained everything very clearly so I always knew what I was doing. I would recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in programming or needs it for a certain role.
Kristian - Test Engineer - January 2021
Very clear and understandable introduction, having never written in Python before this course allowed me to quickly come to grips with the language.
Luke - January 2021
Fantastic course - thorough, well explained and insightful into not just the practices of programming, but the "Why" of programming; the mechanics of how it works. Good explanation throughout, with good side-tangents of knowledge about the different languages and why they differ. Enjoyed immensely, and was incredibly useful.
Patrick - Software Test Apprentice - January 2021
Alan was an amazing teacher, he used as much relevant information as he possibly could. He was down to earth and fitted everything around my needs. He did everything while being down to earth and being friendly and having a laugh as we go. I cant recommend him enough and I'm overly impressed with the course I was on and I will definitely will be back in the future!

Need to add "excellent" as an option above as would like to express that the course was better than "Very Good". The course was extremely well run, with content at just the right level for me, and has helped me immensely with my understanding of the subject.
Dominic - Senior IT Practitioner - Environmental - May 2019
Really enjoyed the course - I found the trainer very helpful - I am looking forward returning to do my Java 1.

Great course and very well delivered. The trainer took all the time we needed ad explained everything very clearly so that we see where we were going wrong and also let us have time to talk this through so that we could correct this ourselves.
Edward - Software tester - Environmental - January 2019
The course is very well structured and taught well.
