Chantel Mitchener - Service Desk Analyst, Unisys
I chose CPP, because I liked the idea of flexible study shifts. I could still work during the day and look after my daughter at the same time, she was only 2 when I started my studies. The instructors at CPP where awesome and helpful. I liked the idea that you could ask them a question via email and they would come and help you while you were on the floor.

CPP was really supportive in helping me find a job. They run employment preparation workshops telling how your CV and cover letters should be and also how to act in a interview.

As an experienced business person returning to full-time study I chose CPP for four reasons. First
, the study regime is like a business or office environment rather than like being back at ‘school’; second
, self-tuition means I can get ‘stuck in’ to my studies and make progress without waiting round for classes and terms to commence... More >
Enrolling at CPP was one of the best choices I made in my life. The method of study brings together the best elements from three education systems that I am familiar with - classroom study, tutoring, and home schooling. I have found that the instructors not only know their material very thoroughly, but are also good at communicating that knowledge in ways that novices can understand and follow. The courses are intensive, but they give all the help anybody could ask for.
