    I chose to study at TCA because there was great follow up communication when I made enquries and I have felt supported throughout the study so far. I really appreciate the support and enthusiasm of my tutors and their prompt feedback

    I’m finding my course is great, there is so much i never knew about myself and other people, on our behaviour, why we can think, act. feel towards various issues, in our lives, etc. there is so much in the course of continued interest as i work through it all. The tutors have been wonderful, in responding quick and with relevant feedback on my work.

    Just the fact that it was online and I could study in my own time at my own pace. Some of the information in the course materials had not been proof read properly. It also jumped around a bit at times. A few of the questions were not worded very clearly.

    I have adopted what I have learnt into my daily life. I have become more intuitive to other people’s needs, practiced better listening skills and am now been kinder to my myself. I have recognised my needs as a full-time working mum and feel no guilt when I take the occasional time out for myself. The tutors are excellent and I greatly appreciate their encouraging feedback which motivates me to give off my best attempt. I’m excited about learning more and look forward to the next set of assessments Thank you Tutors! I am happy with my experience thus far and would not change any part of it

    The course met my expectations very well, but I am wondering, if we need some practical work and if so, is possible the school could connect us to where we could have that experience or that is not really necessary I did not really know the Career academy but I am happy to have found it.

    The course offered was the most comprehensive and covered all of the aspects of counselling and psychology that I want to explore. I am also able to do the course to Diploma level. For me, returning to study after MANY years away from it, it would have been helpful to have some instruction regarding how to structure responses, as an example, how should a case study be presented and with what detail regarding the person or people the case study is on.

    When I saw the ad on Facebook I loved the idea of paying off your course at affordable rates. And that you can add on as you go. Not all people are entitled to government help. And I like the variety of courses. Great introduction course.

    Reccommended to me. When I intially searched up your website I found the pop up box to chat very helpful and your staff were great in getting me set up and underway. I have the paper based notes, as well as following the online study too. It would be great if the practice exercises were noted in the paper based course notes as to when they should be looked at. Just a note stating refer to practise exercise number… I think the actual practise exercises answers are fine to be accessed on line and do nott need to be in the printed based notes. Tutor commments after assignment submission were incredibly supportive and encouraging. Without these comments I think I would feel a little isolated in my learning,but it gave me encouragment that I was nearly there and pointed me in the right direction to relook at things and work through their suggestions. Thank you!!

    We have a personal development budget at work and as I work with Accounts and finances this was the logical choice without going through the polytechnics. I felt that it took me a long time to complete this but very happy with the result.
