Hi Penny & Laura,

Hi Lisa & Laura 

Thanks for replying. I too am working Full time and around elderly parents so dont think I will complete the course any faster than I have to. Well done though Lisa you can now see the light at the end of the tunnel I would imagine ! 
How have you found your papers / assignments ? Its many years since I have done any form of education. 

Look forward to hearing from you both ,
thanks Penny

Hi Penny and everyone else here, how are you getting on with the course so far? I've just enrolled on the fast track course, with my 2 week practical in January, I've only glanced at the 1st page, better get on with it I suppose! 
 Happy studying, and best of luck to you all.

Hi Alan 
Nice to hear from you. Where are you based ? What s the fast track option ? 
I am on unit 10 of assignment 1. Huge learning curve getting back into this studying lark ! Think its coming slowly , time is an issue for me right now. But keep plugging away. Look forward to hearing from you. 
best wishes Penny.

Thanks Penny, I'm in Essex, not far from Lakeside shopping center if you know where it is. The fast track route just gives you a multiple choice test at the end of each module which you need to pass before going on to the next, with no assignment to complete with each module, there's 11 of them. The 12th module is an assignment I do whilst on my 2 weeks clinical training in January. I've not done distance learning for about 12 years or more, so it'll take a bit of getting used to again! I'm lucky as I only go to work a couple of hours in the mornings, and my kids are all grown up, so I have plenty of time for study. Looking forward to getting stuck in.

Hi I have just finished my final assignment. I am going to Bude for the practical starting on Monday next week. I believe Birmingham is another location. I did it in mega quick time as I am currently pretty much out of work and kids grown up! I found it really interesting and hope finding work will go well.
