“I would recommend this course [CTH Management Programmes] to any individual who is willing to get themselves out there. It is not too late to get back into education. I thought life had nothing to give me as I did really badly in school due to my learning difficulties. But today I’m in the process of completing all my levels under hotel management in order to have a degree. This says it all and it is not too late to try”.
