Would recommend ILX to anyone who wants a wonderful learning experience
Good. Thank you very much
The course was fantastic and very valuable for my career development. It was informative and engaging. I would highly recommend it.
Victor our trainer was really good, he was really friendly and explained things in a very easy to understand way. The only downfalls we found was as the practitioner exam had been changed recently the practice tests weren't very good as they weren't previous exams. Some of the questions didn't have correct grammar. The venue was also a bit of a let down on a few points, there was building work going on right outside the hotel which meant there was constant noise whilst trying to learn. Some of the lights were out so it was hard to see. We were then moved into another room for our exams
Same response as the above
Necessarily intense. Course and course teacher adapted well for diverse groups (ability and language differences)
Peter our tutor was fantastic
The exams were challenging, though that was expected! I feel as though everything that was needed to achieve a pass was provided, so I'm happy.
The Trainer Dennis was great, highly recommend
