Anonymous Testimonial about the training programme and their experience of working for Bidwell Henderson.

“In my experience, Bidwell Henderson’s training programme has been absolutely first class. You need no prior knowledge or experience and the programme takes you through step by step from the very basics, with practice exercises and informal quizzes to test your learning, such that you learn a great deal in a short space of time without realising how much you have absorbed. Once you progress to working on real files, there are many opportunities available to try different areas of work to broaden your experience and increase your potential. On top of that, you could not wish for a better, friendlier and more supportive team. There is always someone available to talk to or ask questions of, so you never feel that you have to deal with anything alone. They really are a true pleasure to work with.”
