    Student testimonials

    My experience of the course was wholly positive and I enjoyed every minute of it. At times I felt as though I was the only student, receiving limitless individual attention! The quality of tutorial support was fantastic.

    Dr Rachel Finnegan: proofreading and editing course

    After the disappointment of doing a proofreading course through another distance learning provider I was about ready to give up with learning proofreading. But I learnt more in the first assignment than anything I had learnt on my previous course.

    Tiffany Shand: proofreading and editing course

    The course was excellent, and exceeded my expectations. I am now brimming with ideas for my blog. CMP really do make you feel like you’re the only student they have. I enjoyed the course so much I’ve signed up for two more courses!

    Beverley Duddridge: fashion blogging course

    The course was great. It gave me a lot more hands-on experience and practice than I had expected it to. Tutorial support was great most of the time. Response times were fast, and Jennie’s marking and support was particularly constructive.

    Rebecca Link: proofreading and editing course

    The course went beyond my expectations as it covered many different types of copywriting and also included a bit about web writing and PR. Cleland Thom was the best tutor I’ve ever had through distance learning.
