I am delighted to have everything completed and that the process enabled the learners to pass. I want to personally thank the team for all their kind advice and support. This has been a very difficult time for everyone, I have a large number of learners to manage, but you made life so much easier for me. The very quick turnaround time for confirmation was fantastic and I look forward to working with you all in the next academic year.
