Student Testimonials -

Holly Horton - Essex

I'm so happy I chose this course

Whilst on maternity leave I started thinking about in what capacity I'd go back to work, and if there was something different I could do. I came across reed courses and chose this course in PA and Admin and another in HR.

I was so happy they were on offer! I chose them because the course modules were comprehensive.

I can sit and do modules with my newborn son on my lap via my iPhone. It's so handy, the modules are clear and concise.

I'm so happy I chose this course. I can't wait to add it to my CV and see what jobs I can get.

The course was really easy to access, very clear and easy to read.

Packed with information about so many different topics and situations you may be in as a PA. Helped lots of Microsoft too which I didn’t know about. Very glad I did this course as I have learnt a lot of new things that I didn’t even know you could do online.
