Interested in a short course now?
Great! Here are some quick tips for starting your course...
- Treat your time in the classroom like you would treat the workplace. Be on-time, show respect for others, and complete the tasks
- Look the part! Make sure your hair and face are presentable, iron your clothes and smell nice. Be fit for work. You might be having the time of your life, but it’s not a good idea to show up to work looking like you’ve just come from a party
- Shine bright! When you are in training, work hard and try your best, you can’t ask for more than that! The subjects you complete can be used to gain credits in a full qualification.
