What have people said about attending the Elevate course?

"Since completing Elevate i have met new people and this helped me to improve on my communication skills. I also developed new skills on how to work in group (which is something I used struggle with). The Elevate Programme gave me the opportunity to attend a work placement of my choice, which I was very excited about."
