This is what one of our student says about the course:
“This course has changed everything! I started this course as a level 3, who really knew nothing and everything I did know was outdated! The course is intense, it’s hard work, but boy is it worth it! The knowledge and understanding I’ve come away with after 9 months has improved massively and the confidence it’s given me to take my business forward is something I can never thank Anna Maria for enough. The passion that Anna Maria has for this industry, her business but also every single one of her students is incredible and I feel extremely lucky to of been taught by one of the best! If you have the opportunity do a course with The School, I promise you won’t be disappointed!” Linsey Penn from LJP Sports Therapy
