    This course is worth a lot more than the price. Although it would be better if the lessons were presented by a real instructor, the articulate format is also nice.

    This vocational course was very clear and interesting. I started my career as a speech therapist almost a year ago and I was doing okay. But recently I wanted to shine up my knowledge with the latest information and techniques. Why did I choose One Education? Well, they are one of the top online course providers in the UK and the price is also reasonable. I really liked the course.
