The qualification and units are at a pass grade.

I really enjoyed all my courses. The class sizes are smaller than I thought they would be, which allowed me to get more help from my tutors. They were all very lovely and always answered my questions. Skills Training UK really have changed my life – I recommend them to anyone.
