Feedback from previous students

It is a course which I wish had been invented years ago! I learnt so much about Braille Literacy and thoroughly enjoyed it.

The most relevant course I have studied in terms of relevance to my job as a QTVI and have already started to use strategies to support braille literacy and advice from discussions in my daily working.

It is an excellent course, which is highly relevant to my work. It should be compulsory CPD for all QTVIs.

I have gained much new knowledge and consolidated existing knowledge which I feel will enrich the teaching and learning of the pupils I work with.

I will do all I can to make sure that any QTVIs who join my team in the future do this course.
