I have completed two courses this year with HFE and found the entire experience a very positive one. The tutors are knowledgeable and supportive both on a face to face basis and the student support centre.
I completed my Level 3 mat Pilates qualification with HFE and had a fantastic experience. My tutor checked in with me on a regular basis and was always there to answer questions, help with any IT issues and provide general motivational support!
I came to the course not knowing about musicality skills but luckily I was supported well enough to enable me to improve my musicality skills and pass the practical assessment first time.
The Mat Pilates course looked quite intense and I had only a basic and I mean basic idea of the exercises. Christmas made it all the more stressful and I wondered if I had done the right thing booking the course. My fears were quickly put to rest!
