My CIM tutor was fantastic and gave me all the help and support I needed. After starting the course I took the big step of leaving my job and taking up a position as marketing assistant, which has given me the opportunity to put my new skills into practice. I’ve also progressed to the next level of the CIM pathway and am really enjoying my new career direction. I would highly recommend Home Learning College.
