  • I’ve found my experience with Acacia to have been very positive. It was recommended to me by my colleague and I in turn have recommended it to others. I liked that there was flexibility around locations and delivery around the course (part-time, weekend etc.). I also found the tutors to be very knowledgeable and the study materials available to be very useful. I’m nearing the end of my Foundation Diploma and have just enrolled in Intermediate.

  • I am certainly much better informed of practice, theory and legislation. This has meant I’m much more confident at work.
