What was best about the course?

Ability to work at a distance at a convenient time and scale.
How it was broken down into small sections for the alphabet, numbers, money. It gave areas to work towards and ensured that learning was progressive.
Info pack very good.
Developing my skills.

What, if anything, could have been improved?

Three months was a tight timescale especially with holidays, other work commitments etc.
The length of the Braille comprehension in the ongoing course as this is very different to the length of the Braille comprehension in the final examination.
Nothing, I really enjoyed it!
