General English
I'm so lucky, I had a great time with amazing teachers in General English-Ms.Jessica and Ms.Jayne. They're always supportive to us. I've learned a lot and I could improve my English skill with my NIET Group class. I really appreciate their help.
Patricia Charlton Brown

Charlton Brown’s trainers are excellent, helping me throughout my Certificate III in Early Childhood Education with incredible examples from the industry, blending their experience and background into the lessons; it really makes the training engaging.
