‘Before commencing this course we had no marketing plan and little direction. Working through the modules enabled me to pay more attention to our ‘customers’ and explore a more abstract approach to marketing our ‘products’. Being more aware of our competitors and the market helped me become more proactive. By concentrating on future ‘commissioners’ with the help of Shelton Associates I was able to undertake a cost analysis for separate ‘units’ of provision, rather than costing for the service as a whole. This resulted in more success in our funding bids too. Understanding the importance of Market Research, undertaken in a module, helped us to present our data in a more competitive way. We now have a clear vision for the future and I would recommend this Marketing NVQ course to anyone who wishes to become more successful in a growing competitive field‘.
