Enjoyable class, with approachable teacher. Teacher was extremely knowledgeable about her subject, and very supportive of students. Good classroom management, and differentiation. Gained lots of confidence from the course and how to move forward creating videos for my business.

Attending the Vlog and Youtube course was a brilliant experience for me.

The participants had a varied range of interests and reasons for wanting to learn how to be successful in Vlog/Youtube and the tutor took time to understand what each student wanted to achieve.

We all made a video clips and had the benefit of detailed and comprehensive feedback from the tutor before each shoot.

The tutors went to a great deal of trouble with lighting and background to ensure that the clips we received at the end of our course were of a good standard.

Having copies of the clips and still photos made the course particularly good value in terms of time and money. I have no hesitation in recommending this course
