Really enjoyed the course at Bunnyfoot! It gave me a good overview of human centred design, and our teacher helped us understand how this fitted with latest industry practice, and it put me in a good position for the exam!

The CPUX-F course was a great way to introduce our staff to the fundamentals of user experience. Becs is a wonderfully inclusive and engaging trainer, with the ability to put theoretical ideas into a practical context.

George Langlands

I found the course to be really inspiring. The group work and the use cases we worked through really brought the topic to life. Our tutor provided excellent advice and training. I'm really thrilled I passed!


Keith Tomlinson
Digital Community Manager, Unilever


This course gave me the knowledge to talk about human-centred design with so much more confidence and I’m really looking forward to putting the skills and information I’ve learned into use at my new role. The course was expertly run and it was great to learn alongside others in the field. There was a really good balance of learning and practical activities. I’m delighted to be certified!


Natalie Heaton
Specialist Editor (User Experience), BUPA


The CPUX course was hugely insightful and I thoroughly enjoyed taking it. Learning directly from a practitioner and expert in the field was much more relevant and penetrating than you get with just a training course provider! I left with the knowledge and understanding that has allowed me to talk confidently to senior managers about human-centred design and user experience, and the certification really demonstrates my expertise in the field. Being armed with great set of tools in my toolkit, I can use these to improve processes and adopt an approach that is based around the customer/user, instead of business needs.


Debbie Maxwell
Digital Marketing Manager, Legal & General


I can’t recommend this course enough to anyone looking for a really solid overview of the human centred design process. Becs did an incredible job of bringing the content to life and putting it in real-world context, so we were not only ready to pass the exam, but also use our new knowledge at work!
