I'm doing the assessment day at Luton on the 4th October, feeling nervous about it. The only part I feel confident is about selling your chosen excursion. So who else is going to Luton on the 4th

Are you going to include the price ?


Posted By: AndrewH
Date Posted: 20 September 2017 at 17:45
Yeah I know, but I have a habit of never putting it on charge before I go to bed.

I never thought about prices, don't sound like a bad idea, shows how much effort you put into research
