“I attended the Supervisory Management programme delivered by Mike Roche in 2019 and I can’t recommend it highly enough. The course content was well laid out, easy to understand and the pace of delivery was perfect. Mike’s approach to training made me feel at ease and he was extremely approachable when I needed help or advice. Overall, it was a fantastic course, delivered by an excellent trainer and it gave me the appropriate skills needed to excel as a manager within my organisation.”
