I completed my Level 2 NVQ in Health and Social Care with Paragon Skills. My tutor was absolutely brilliant. I am now currently doing my Level 3 in Health and Social Care. No question is too big or small or silly, help is always at hand either in person, on the phone and or by emails! I would recommend Paragon skills to anyone and everyone wanting to expand their knowledge in their chosen field.
