I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff, teachers, mentors, and management team at Kalandra Education Group. It was the most memorable experience of my life which I will always cherish.

I was initially apprehensive as I work fulltime and was concerned whether I would be able to complete the course. All my doubts were cleared when I knew my teachers were Jemy Tomy and Ritchie Verano. They are very kind, helpful, motivating, supportive, understanding. They have in-depth knowledge and experience of the healthcare system and always willing to help me with my learning. Both Jemy and Ritchie were extremely patient and always guided me at each and every step to complete the course. Their enthusiasm is so addictive it instilled in me the courage to complete the challenge I had undertaken.

Many thanks to the staff, teachers, mentors, management team and to my teachers Jemy Tomy and Richie Verano it would not have been possible without your unwavering support to complete my diploma.

I highly recommend Kalandra to anyone who wants to pursue a career in the  field of  healthcare.

D. K. (Diploma in Dementia, Level 5)

I would like to say thank you for all the support and guidance you have showed. Studying diploma full- time and working at the same time was not an easy journey, most especially there were plenty of modules to cover and deadline of submissions to follow. There were instances I want to give up, but Jemy my mentor, was the one who encourage me and push me to my limit. Her endless support, understanding, and effort, help me get through challenges any students could have. Without her and to all the staff of Kalandra I won’t be able to finish my study. Holding my diploma during graduation day was the best feeling, I could see the fruit of my endeavours, and it encouraged me more to further my study in the future. 

Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart! I will not forget the best experience and journey with you all.

I just want to say how much I enjoy your webinar training sessions.  When I first started L3 I was nervous and wished I hadn't enrolled but I thought, I'm going to have to go for my L3 regardless of who I am training through. I found the theory part incredibly hard to begin with and I did want to pull out a few times.

 Then I remembered an assignment I was struggling with and sent you an email regarding this topic, you helped me so much by emailing back and saying that you will find a way to help me through the assignment and you did.  When you emailed my assignment and asked if I could fix some of the answers, you explained in Layman terms what the question was. I was ever so grateful, and I know for a fact that all tutors would not rephrase a question to be understood

Every webinar followed and every question followed, and you would always answer in the way that I would understand or, you would ask if we understood the question, so that you could rephrase it.

I believe that it is the tutor that makes the difference to how much a student can learn and take in. I also believe that I would not have been able to get through the assignments without the input and weekly webinar held by the tutor.

Thank you Joanna.
