Bruna (tutor) Sagitter Training

I was leading an 8-week course and desperately looking for a venue that was close to the station, reasonable and provided a computer, projector and white board. The Friends Centre provided all of this and more! Our room was light and airy, with more than enough space for 20 people to move around comfortably. The staff were always very friendly and attentive and stepped in whenever we needed assistance with anything. I hope to run the course again in the future and I will definitely be coming back to the Friends Centre! Thank you so much.

Thank you very much to all the team at Friends Centre for all your help in making sure our English language and cultural studies course ran smoothly. The teaching rooms were fully equipped, very clean and well set out making an ideal learning environment for our students. The building is easy to get to with plenty of parking nearby and is very quiet which helps make it an ideal place to study. Once again thank you to all the team for all your help. We look forward to returning to teach more courses soon!
