The Media First trainers pitched our training day perfectly: there was a good balance of ‘theory’ and practical and the interview sessions really made sense in putting into practice what we had learnt and understood. They were also so positive, enthusiastic and constructive in their feedback which was great. We really felt that the day was built around our individual requirements, skills and needs. It didn’t feel like a ‘template’ day rolled out and made to fit.
