Nation­al Advanced Cer­tifi­cate in Local Author­i­ty Admin­is­tra­tion Lev­el I student

The instruc­tion is great but, to be hon­est, I also enjoyed learn­ing from oth­er stu­dents. I haven’t worked in the indus­try yet, so hear­ing from class­mates on their chal­lenges or suc­cess­es was cru­cial for me to oper­a­tional­ize what we were learn­ing in a real-world environment.
