It is perfect if you dont have the time to attend a college or a facility that provides this course because you can complete it within your spare time at home or out and about.

quite easy to access, interesting with good content,, good value, and no time limit. I would have given it 5 but think would have been over priced if had paid full cost

Experienced some difficulty logging in to online accadamy uk but staff I spoke with were extremely patient and understanding and able to resolve quickly.The course itself will give me greater depth and understanding of the children I work with.Also been some mental stimulation during lockdown.
