Hi there, I've just started the Foot Healthcare Practitioner Course. I'd love to hear from anyone else doing the same course.

Hi Lyn, thank you. I am finding it harder than I thought. I just need to get into the swing of things and learn to make my answers precise. Glad to hear that your first assignment went well. Good luck with the next one and hopefully I will be able to say the same soon.

Hi Jane, I don't think it was an offer of help with the coursework, but just a kind offer from someone with experience, for the terminology used.

Hi Kerry, me too. Glad you're enjoying it. I need to buckle down and be strict with myself, but this is something I am determined to do. Good luck.

Does anyone know if we actually get to practise what we have learned on members of the public when we attend the practical course? I've just watched the video on the one in Bude and it seems that they were just practising on each other!

Hi Adele, apologies for not replying sooner, I haven't been very well. It does take a while doesn't it, especially when you haven't studied for some  time. Good luck to you and here's to assignment number two.

Hi Gillian

I started the course last week, enjoying it but a lot to take in.  Trying to find out about booking a centre for the practical training but finding it very difficult to get a response from Stonebridge.

I haven't even thought about that part of it yet, Sarah. I'm just concentrating on getting the assignments completed by the deadlines at the moment!!
