      Hi there Colleen,

      Thank you for your enquiry. That is fantastic!

      Over the years we have helped many mature students from different backgrounds achieve successful career changes. Our latest – a ‘young’ lady who turned 50 with us and was appointed to her new position at her first interview. In 2014 we had three mature students affectionately nicknamed ‘the old age home’. They were all snapped up by a large National company at the end of their year.

      To answer your question we are based in Cape Town, 37 Barrack Street. I trust this works for you. Let me know should you have any further questions.

      Kind Regards
