    It was very well run, covered a lot – met my expectations in terms of the course agenda. Both Eunice and Teresa communicated their knowledge and skills clearly and succinctly – and I feel I have gained significant understanding to place within my everyday work – and within my longer term goal of improving my knowledge and skills within Production.

    I thought the course was very impressive – the trainers were very knowledgable and explained everything clearly. I thoroughly enjoyed the day with Eunice and Teresa. I thought their teaching methods were great and they had a huge amount of knowledge, that they shared with us throughout the day.

    Extensive & detailed – brimming with information. The trainers came across as highly knowledgeable in their fields and were very open to questions and ensured everyone understood the material. I particularly enjoyed the parts where we interacted with material, for example choosing papers for mock book projects and examining different printed examples – it helped to take the material beyond the purely theoretical. A whirlwind of information!

    Very good, the setup was nice and informal which put me at ease. Very informative (and entertaining!)

    Very knowledgeable, it was a privilege to benefit from their extensive experience. They explained everything very clearly (although I still struggled with the maths in working out economic extents – but I don’t think I would ever need to do that in my current role. And I know I wasn’t the only one struggling!).It was a very useful day and I feel I got a lot from it.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the course. It really did give me a far better understanding of our processes. Teresa and Eunice were lovely, approachable and explained everything brilliantly. I had a great day. I’m really pleased I chose this one!

    Really enjoyed it – I learned a great deal about pre-press that I didn’t know before, and enjoyed getting to know more about preparing colour titles for press. Eunice and Teresa were both wonderful – very friendly and knowledgeable, and returned to queries with examples. An excellent experience that has deepened my knowledge of pre-press production
