In my current job role I have taken part in many online courses, but Future Step Education have truly been the best. Tutor support has been fantastic and they are always there for any worries you may have. Programme is well structured giving ample time to complete units and the inclusion of cohort group chats means that you feel like you are part of a group not just going at it alone, like many online courses can sometimes make you feel.
Feedback on coursework is great and very timely, meaning you don’t have to spend the next unit worrying about the last one. Resources and tutorials are also varied and easily accessible and easy to follow. You truly get what you pay for and more with this course, would recommend them to anyone.
