We would like to let you know that sadly Anne Bradley has informed us here at AOK that she will not be running any more Administration or Business Management courses after this term; the only course she may continue to run is, Using Microsoft Office 2010 for Business Education which may run in September. We will be extremely sad to see Anne go and will spend our summer looking for a suitable candidate to run Business Education courses next term, Anne’s shoes will be very hard to fill.
There are still places remaining on the following courses which Anne will run for the last time:
