“Bruck Payne were able to tailor my Diploma qualification so that it worked well for me, enabling me to learn at my own pace and complete assignments within timescales I set myself. Rachael supported me by allowing me to build on my experience, whilst still challenging me. The group coaching session run by Josie was incredibly useful and insightful. I learned many things from Rachael and Josie that I use in my role on a regular basis. I really enjoyed working with, and would not hesitate to recommend, Bruck Payne.”
