"The exam board (TLM) have been nothing but helpful and I can not praise them enough. If you have a question you send an email and you get an answer within hours" Jon Williams, The Park Community School This course is for learners who want to better understand the world of work and are considering working in a range of sectors, including setting up companies in their own communities. It would be useful for people who have been away from the world of work for some time, perhaps raising a family, who want to be re-introduced to what is required of them and how they might make a success of their choices.
