What people are saying

Working with SAGE over the last years has assisted towards providing our students with more exposure through being able to teach the theory and then execute some of the transactions using the software. This has added a more practical feel to what we can offer as a university and is something different that the students really enjoy. Having digital skills is an important attribute that we would like our learners to have irrespective of the backgrounds they come from taking into account the importance of digital skills in the marketplace. Further being able to produce a certificate has been a real game changer for some of our students who were able to access employment opportunities as a result.
