Retail Management
by Rich - May 2016

Shortly after starting a new job as a shop manager it was suggested that I complete a course in retail. I needed something flexible, that could be completed via distance learning, ideally online. Having found Stonebridge I enrolled and started studying. The course was in manageable units and was easy to follow, but did involve some challenging assignments too. Due to an illness I had to stop studying for a while, but Stomebridge happily extended my schedule without hassle or charge once I explained the situation to them. I eventually completed my course and received both my Stonebridge and NCFE certificates, wish proudly hang on my wall. Having now left retail management, after a successful time I have decided upon a change of career direction and have just enrolled in their Level 3 QCF Foot Health Practitioner course, with a view to using it as a stepping stone to study podiatry at uni next year...at the age of 39!

Studying with Stonebridge College has been one of my best experience. I believe that this college has given me a great opportunity to further my career as well as boost my confidence in my chosen field. It has been a tough and challenging experience mainly because of my health and personal circumstances but the support I received from my tutors and the cooperation shown towards me by the college has helped me to complete my course in flying colours. I feel it is an excellent learning platform for working adults who want to pursue their lifelong learning journey. I found the course thoroughly enjoyable, easily manageable and with relevant and interesting content. I learnt so much in a fun and enjoyable way, yet it was still challenging. The course material was thorough, yet easy to follow and understand. My experience with my tutor was perfect. I learned the most from the feedback she gave me, she pointed out where I was making mistakes so I could learn from them. Now I feel it's definitely worth signing up for this course, even if just as a hobby! Now I feel proud and grateful to have finally done it! Overall, I am completely satisfied with the service and the explanation in dealing with all my queries. I am very happy and satisfied and after regaining my health. I would like to recommend all working adults who are busy with their daily life to use this platform in pursuing their career. I recommend this Stonebridge College to everyone. This is the best place I have come across with and decided to finish my course that I could not have finished with other colleges or university as there is no pressure with studying on-line. You don't need to be in class, you can study on your own in your time till you finish. I would recommend anyone to join. Zul-E-Nooreen Malik- Diploma in Child Psychology March 2016
