The course helped me gain a sense of how business works. I learned practical skills in modules such as Word Processing and Spreadsheets. My favourite course was Accounting - Manual & Computerised. I enjoyed producing a trading profit/loss and balance sheet using Sage. I learned to take responsibility for my learning which helped me to feel motivated and achieve my potential.
