Learners need a basic command of English
So whilst we are often able to provide support to people who for example do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number of people who require assistance, although we may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please phone us 02088870155 if you need any guidance.
Practical skills are assessed by continuous observation by the trainer and there is a written assessment paper to check understanding.
