TESTIMONIALS

I have recently passed my Level 3 Diploma for the Children’s Workplace EYE (RQF). I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Jeanette Arnold for her calm and relaxed manner in which she guided me through the course. I found it challenging during these extraordinary times, obviously during COVID-19, I was unable to be taught face to face, but with the professionalism, clarity and well laid out tasks of Jeanette, I managed to get through. Whenever I spoke to Jeanette for queries, I felt confident and at ease, which you will see from my feedback recordings. Again, many thanks to Parenta, but especially Jeanette, who is a true asset to your company in these very unprecedented and difficult times.
