As I initially qualified in 1996, for me this course was a good way of ensuring that my technical knowledge was up to date. The course has given me new knowledge in specific areas, which has been highly beneficial for dealing with strategic issues facing the college.

I felt that the set program for the Specialist Qualification was very useful in developing and securing my employment law knowledge and understanding. The design of the course enabled the intake of complex legal information in a manner which was thoroughly assessed and considered in conveying employment law topics in an empowering and engaging way.
