"I’ve learnt so much and applied it to my financial role!"

I needed to gain further financial skills, and get a recognised qualification, whilst working in my current full-time job.
The level of support from The Skills Network is amazing – they sent me mock tests, marked them all for me (free of charge), and if I’ve had any questions, I’ve called and been able to get the answers straight away, so everyone has been really helpful. I would definitely like to study other courses!
The system which you use to study the units, ‘EQUAL’, has been really useful and easy to use, and you can just break off at any point!
