I’ve enjoyed going back to college at Lewisham Southwark College where the tutors have been really supportive and I have made some great friends. I would definitely recommend doing an apprenticeship to anyone who’s thinking about it.

I have been able to attain a First Class degree and all this was possible because of what Sandra Fernando and other IT Tutors taught me – I really do appreciate their teaching and support. Thanks and keep doing the good work!

I had teaching experience and was confident in my professional abilities but felt I needed to improve my language skills, and my understanding of the English education system to be ‘work-ready’ in the UK, so I decided to start again from the bottom of the ladder.

My apprenticeship has so far helped me along my career path. It’s guided me into what I want to do in the future, and given me an insight into what I could be - or achieve - within the next five years.

I’ve become more confident and more accepting of things that I may not be able to control, I’ve learnt to use my time well, valuing my time here and enjoying every minute that happens.

The Digital Media course pushed my skills in media that I’d never discovered before like photoshoot, indesign, audition and premiere pro. By using these softwares consistently, my work began to evolve from traditional to modern.

The staff here have shown me how to get better and improve my work – and I’ve already started seeing a difference, even after only 2 months. We also get amazing professional work placements – like the Plague Event at the National Maritime Museum.
