Sean was brilliant: professional, engaging, personable, encouraging and knew his stuff. He also pushed us to do really well, which I liked. My background is in education, so it was good to learn a lot from the course, even though I’ve been a teacher for 20 years. I had expected to be bored by every minute of it, but I found it challenging (a bit frustrating at times because of the VET structure) and thought-provoking. This wasn’t just the ‘course’, per se, it was the value-add from Sean’s years of experience in different fields. He genuinely made me think about how I teach, and how I can do it better.

In all, a good course, excellent trainer, who managed a group with varying skill levels, backgrounds and abilities in a professional manner. I enjoyed the course and managed to finally get this qualification completed. In this, I believe the eight day course was excellent value as provided the work is satisfactorily completed, the qualification is gained at the end of and you have no further commitments.

I’ve tried the course via correspondence through another provider and it just didn’t work for me. I think Pinnacle provided a great course over twelve pretty intense days and would recommend you as a great training provider.
