"The support I have received from both my academic tutor and my placement mentors has been truly amazing. I genuinely could not have asked for a better support system. They have tailored their support to my individual needs, and I feel there is a genuine care about my well-being and development.
I am truly blessed to have been given the opportunity to work with such a wonderful, inspiring, and motivated team (...). Training during the time of the Coronavirus pandemic has not been without its challenges - but it has also provided me with practical experiences of being adaptable, versatile, and resilient."
