Horticulture Course Interim Feedback FormStep 1 of 812%THANK YOU for being part of our training course. Please take a moment to provide us with some feedback on how you are finding the course. Any constructive feedback would be of great help. Whilst we always appreciate positive feedback, it’s just as important to know where we can improve. When giving feedback, please be as constructive and as detailed as possible. Whilst “it is great” warms the heart, we don’t know why you feel it is great. Conversely, “not meeting my expectations” doesn’t tell us where we could improve.We take your feedback very seriously and act upon honest and constructive feedback in an effort to improve what we do. Your comments can remain anonymous if you wish, but if you provide opportunities for improvement or a complaint, we do ask you to provide your name and contact details, then we are able to inform you of the improvements to our systems.
