Past student’s feedback:

I went into the course not knowing anything about book keeping, taxes or insurance. I knew nothing of any of the legal aspects of business and I was terrified of starting a business without having any of this knowledge. I gained this knowledge from the Cell Block course in easy terms that made the ideas less scary.”

“I also gained a lot of support, from the Enterprise team and other students who were taking part on the course. I was made to feel like I could succeed and that I had a sound business idea.”

“The trainer was inspirational and he has helped me refine my idea to a point that is more feasible."
