      Hi Daisy, thanks for your comment. We offer several different courses of varying lengths – to find out which one is right for you, it’s best to pop in for a quick chat with one of our course advisers! I’ve passed your enquiry onto our receptionists who will be in touch with more information. We do offer help for students to find employment upon successful completion of the course. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
