Courses that complement this Apprenticeship
I was enrolled on a Management course 'Team Leader/Supervisor level 3' my tutor was Kristy Duffield. The course was interesting, I recommend taking this course if you are trying to work your way up the ladder in the company that you are working for. The course was challenging as this was to be done alongside your work in the workplace, I am now looking at what courses I can take next. A big thumbs up to Eden Training for all the help they have given me.Mark James
