“Clare Owen has been a really excellent scheme secretary”
“When requesting information by email, I have noticed that there is 'out of hours activity' to answer me. I regard this as a stand out 'above and beyond' - impressed.”
“Excellent service - as expected and why PSGS was chosen.”

“Highly informative. Having leading professionals deliver the TKU course really adds value.”
“Very professional and engaged service.”
