At LTT we focus on empowering our students with the necessary skills required to pursue their dream careers. To do this, we ensure our trainer assessors are experts in their fields. We love receiving feedback from our students and clients. Mark reached out recently with feedback for Dawn Jecks (Workplace Trainer Assessor) and we would love to share.⠀
“Once again I would like to say thank you for everything during the time we spent on my lab training. You are an amazing lecturer. I really enjoyed the training because of your professionalism and your friendship. Thank you so much.”⠀
— Mark Foai, workplace laboratory student, BGC

STUDY TIP: It has been proven that explaining a concept to someone improves your own encoding of the concept and fortifies your ability to explain it again during your exam. As well, if you have both made notes on the information in class and are quizzing each other, you may find that you haven’t written certain concepts that they have.
