"I wanted to say how professional you and the team have been throughout my application to undertake the iBSL course. Without your support it would have been so easy for me to have given up. A huge thank you. I have since recommended you to my fellow trainee interpreters and hope they apply for future courses. I know I will!"

Afternoon all, I finally got some feedback from Grey Coat School about the Languages at Work event that you all supported. I have attached the feedback for you to have a read through as it is very positive - again thanks for all your support! Best, Hannah
