"ASSIST’s work with Open College Network West Midlands has allowed the creation and development of a much needed course.  The process; from development through to certification, has been smooth and they have been supportive throughout.  Open College Network West Midlands advisors were always available to answer questions and provide guidance to ensure the centre and learner needs were met."
