‘This course has given me so much confidence and improved my skills and knowledge. It has helped me with my family life and my son’s school life. I can now talk to different people, professionals, teachers and people who are in high positions. To be able to speak up for myself is a big thing for me. I wasn’t able to do that before because I was scared and timid. Now I feel I can.’
