We were impressed throughout by how brilliantly organised and patient you are. The clearly laid out structure and content of the course was reassuring, and your calm directions gave Jasmine confidence when she had initially felt apprehensive at the prospect of participating in a webinar. Jasmine also appreciated your timely advice and support on the weekly assignments…made the whole experience fun and rewarding. Thank you and wishing you every future success. – Gail

Molly really enjoyed the course and had great fun coming up with ideas each week and then executing them. I’m really proud of her for her efforts and she has produced some really lovely photographs. I think she will have a lifelong passion for photography as a result. – Andrew

William really enjoyed and got a lot out of the online tutorial yesterday. He is raring to go with his assignment for this week. I’m also looking forward to seeing the photos he takes with the new skills he learns. Thank you! – Vanessa

I would also like to say a big thank you to you. I think that the course has been very well & professionally run. Jonathan has been very excited, inspired & motivated by it – and has also taught his dad how to use the camera properly!! – Isobel


My son has just completed the DofE Webinar course and loved it. The different topics each week really made him think about his photography and has really fed his interest. Would definitely recommend this course. Thank you!

Many thanks indeed, Lillie for the programme. It was fab for Olivia (and for us all) – the webinars were great and the 12 week programme of work. It has really been a great development opportunity for her and she is debating whether to continue to A level. We will be wholeheartedly recommending the programme!

Thanks – he’s enjoyed it a lot and is well set up for his Photography GCSE next year. – Dave

Emily has really enjoyed the course – and we’ve been super impressed with what Emily has accomplished. At last – someone in our house can finally use our camera with great results! The way the course is structured is superb, really focused & clear – thank you! – Michelle
