Feedback from previous session:

" It was fantastic - it covered all the relevant information succinctly, and cleared up a lot of queries that I had (in particular about the choice of assessors, and structure of the transfer report). The process required with the GSO2 form was clear and very easy to understand.

 "The speaker was reassuring, but didn't underplay the amount of work that is required. She was able to pass on a lot of tips from her extensive experience, which was fantastic.

 "It was a brilliant session - thank you very much. Despite it not being face to face, they managed to make it feel very interactive. I would definitely recommend it to others”
