Some of our industry partners

Pearson College London have been detailed, and informative; the structure has been well balanced with a mix of tutor explanation, slides, group work, videos and a lot of interaction and feedback. I would recommend them to anyone looking to set an apprentice standard within their organisation. I feel so comfortable with the way they handle things, that in my opinion they have set the benchmark.
