    The Tutors feed back was good but the counselling text notes must be revised to a proper standard.Spend more time developing the counselling text or prescribe a standard book written by a professional with good experience. In fact the present notes is far below the standard.

    All went well. I had a gap due to illness in december/january, so I had to study during my holidays. Overall, tutors responses were quick.

    It was a great experience studying online with The Career Academy. One of the best parts was the time allowed to complete all assignments. I could study at my own pace without short deadlines.

    Just the fact that it was online and I could study in my own time at my own pace. Some of the information in the course materials had not been proof read properly. It also jumped around a bit at times. A few of the questions were not worded very clearly.

    I have adopted what I have learnt into my daily life. I have become more intuitive to other people’s needs, practiced better listening skills and am now been kinder to my myself. I have recognised my needs as a full-time working mum and feel no guilt when I take the occasional time out for myself. The tutors are excellent and I greatly appreciate their encouraging feedback which motivates me to give off my best attempt. I’m excited about learning more and look forward to the next set of assessments Thank you Tutors! I am happy with my experience thus far and would not change any part of it

    The course met my expectations very well, but I am wondering, if we need some practical work and if so, is possible the school could connect us to where we could have that experience or that is not really necessary I did not really know the Career academy but I am happy to have found it.

    I chose The Career Academy because I saw it in Facebook and when I called the price was convenient for me. I would like to thank Tamara Jones, Sophie Sills and Kavya Raj for their feedbacks and, most of all, for their motivational words, they encourage me to keep going and they gave me security in my writing skills.
    Thank you very much!! I felt acompanied all the way through!!!

    the way the questions are laid out is frustrating.
    i am not happy. I have to call my tutors every time i do not understand my assignment Question, so far i have rung up for them to reword the question for every assignment topic.
    sometimes i just submit my work hoping that I have understood it correctly however after the second attempt i have to call up and ask the tutor to re-read the Question even they agree the layout is confusing),
    I will need to rethink about doing future studies with career academy. halfway through the course and the way the questions are laid out is frustrating
    something needs to be done ASAP, instead of waiting for more negative feedback Iv already spoken to my tutors about this too many times.

    The course offered was the most comprehensive and covered all of the aspects of counselling and psychology that I want to explore. I am also able to do the course to Diploma level. For me, returning to study after MANY years away from it, it would have been helpful to have some instruction regarding how to structure responses, as an example, how should a case study be presented and with what detail regarding the person or people the case study is on.
