Student Testimonial

‘I attended Brooksby College to work towards the City and Guilds Level 3 Introductory Dog Grooming qualification.

Like any new student starting a new course I was fairly nervous but from the word go Donna’s welcoming smile and enthusiasm towards her job immediately put my mind at ease.

The course was made up of both practical and theory modules, in both I found Donna knowledgeable and her feedback to be very fair and constructive.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Brooksby Melton College and would highly recommend their Dog Grooming courses to anybody that needs hands-on training delivered by an excellent tutor.’
