Studying with BOLC gave me the confidence I needed to put my home-business dreams into action. I was amazed how much I picked up by studying in my spare time, I also cannot fault the customer care team. Top marks all round!
I chose BOLC’s Level 4 Business Diploma as I wanted to be taken seriously as a contender for promotion. The results speak for themselves – two years on and I’m managing the team I was previously a part of.
