What students said about the training:
"I approached my project differently after the training. The main thing was the way to think about and approach projects in a different light. Looking at tasks such as these in a different light really speeds up the processes." Alex Gilbert, Greenspace Live Ltd
"I found it very useful from the CV development aspect. I also enjoyed the team building which are not commonly included in university courses." Ben Weston, Lochaber Housing Association Community Services
"I enjoyed the experience of meeting the other students and really enjoyed the presentation skills and CV building sessions." Karolina Kolendo, Loch Torridon Community Centre
