Chris Stokes – Distance Diploma

I am really enjoying the Distance Diploma course I find it challenging and creative.  I initially trained as a hairdresser/makeup artist, but couldn’t find the backup in my apprenticship.  When I started the Diploma I thought it would be a lot easier, but I found I can learn at my own pace and I get great feedback from my tutor Glenda, who lets me know where I have made an error and why.  The most difficult thing is waiting for the feedback but Glenda goes into great detail and helps me understand.  I am setting up work experience for myself later this week with a Hamilton designer who is into 1950’s rock vintage, and am really looking forward to it.  I have only done the sewing, skirt and fitted T’Shirt modules so far, but the garments fit well and the Academy is impressed with my work.  – Chris Stokes – Distance Diploma
