    Good course and support

    NCC offered the course I wanted, and while that has lived up to my expectations what I have found really useful is the support. There is always someone to email or talk to on live chats for any question and you get answers immediately. For an online course I've never felt on my own or struggled in silence. Highly recommended.

    Raised my confidence

    I found the course very useful as I am currently working as a Listening Volunteer. The Tutor gave me useful feedback, which raised my confidence and made me aspire to future learning, training and development possibilities. I prefer distance learning to attending a class. The great benefit is that it can fit into the time I had available. I would certainly do another course.
