  • “I learnt a great deal regarding different interview techniques, ways in which you can approach an interview and gain information from people you’re interviewing.

    How you structure, contextualise and edit a narrative was well addressed in the course and made me aware of my personal strengths and weaknesses. The workshop really made me evaluate how I write and the different approaches I can consider when set a writing task.”
