    The best part was being able to fit it around my life. As a working single parent of a child with mental health challenges, it was at times very difficult and many times I wanted to give up but my tutors were supportive and encouraged me to persevere. its the first time Ive studied online, and that in itself was a challenge for me, so all in all I’m happy with my personal experience

    Time – Template. If Microsoft word can not be used for any reason, then I believe that an alternative could be used like word pad.

    It would be nice to have some more specific feedback on tutors, perhaps other ideas that I had not thought about. Course met my needs and I could work from home

    I was interested in gaining knowledge on psychology but I needed a course that was very flexible. I believe the content can be more challenging and technical.

    i really liked the course and what i have learnt has changed my thinking patterns. however, the instructions of the assignments were horrible. i had to ring up the tutor every week (every 2nd day) to ask them to re-word the questions. because of this i had to resubmit a lot of my assignments.
    this, of course, has turned me off from studying as often as i use to (unfortunately)
    however, some positive. the tutors are awesome, the help is there all the time. I am very thanking you. I am blessed to be able to find a course that helps me study as a parent at home.

    I chose to the study with the career academy because it would fit in with the life style of family life. I am really enjoying every aspect of this course, i am learning so much in terms of my personal day to day life situations, which is very encouraging. The tutors are doing a fantastic job by giving encouraging feedback in each assignment and are very supportive. I would recommend this course definatley.

    I thoroughly enjoyed working through this course. The course content was really interesting and definitely helped me through some of my own personal issues.Being able to study at home in my own time really attracted me to this course. The tutors were excellent, positive in their feedback and very helpful when I needed some questions clarified. I would highly reccomend The Career Academy to anyone who is thinking about future studies. I did feel there were a couple of questions that needed to be written a bit more clearly.

    It was my first foray into online study or indeed any study for some thirty odd years and noticed that there are quite a few different courses; if I am honest it was more a case of a pin and a blindfold. But having said that I have felt very comfortable with the experience and the encouragement I received from the different Tutors with their explanations and feedback helped me feel that I was actually understanding and learning, I felt there was connection and that had I needed it, I could have contacted them for a more in depth discussion. Nothing other than I have thoroughly enjoyed doing this course. Learning has done a lot for my self-esteem.

Nothing other than I have thoroughly enjoyed doing this course. Learning has done a lot for my self-esteem.I think it would be useful to have the printed notes proof read as there are a number of typographical errors and in some cases hieroglyphics in place of regular alphabet. Include in the footer the Topic/Chapter title and page of page numbering. This would help when the file falls apart and needs putting back together.

    I chose Career Academy because I could do the course in my own time and in my own home which made it easy for me to continue looking after my family commitments etc. Not really – just thanks for all the encouraging comments I have received from all the tutors throughout the Diploma at the end of each assignment. I think without the positive feedback I would have lost motivation a long time ago. I think some of the earlier courses were full of grammatical errors which was off-putting for me but recent content has been much improved. While this is an online course, I did feel quite isolated and thought that maybe a phone call part way into the Diploma, just to see how I was going, would have been a nice touch. Other than that, I have enjoyed my experience.

    I found the Psychology assignments very interesting and it puts a whole new perspective on how I can best adjust to myself and others around me and I found the subject interesting. I found the tutors helpful and experts in psychology. I would recommend anyone interested in gaining more information and knowledge to take on a course with your organisation. I will be looking at having a go at the diploma in psychology so more to follow on that.

    Early days yet. trying to get accustomed to navigating through the steps as I’m not very computer literate. I have found enough reading material to do my first assignment. Help has been good, but I’m sure they will be needed a lot more in the future as the course progresses.

    At times I found it difficult to interpret the questions, be it the way the question was worded or the way I read it. Perhaps if the questions could be simplified or a small example provided to remove any misinterpretation.
