    Just completed my NRSWA supervisor course at MPTT with Mark as the tutor. I found Mark very helpful and knowledgeable (even for a Leeds fan) about everything relating to the training course and he provided excellent guidance. Big shout out also to his glamorous assistant Gina who showed impeccable time keeping. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable week made me feel at ease where as some courses can feel over intense. Thanks guys.
