I really enjoyed studying at the College due to the teaching, with the tutors having a wealth of experience and knowledge and a very approachable attitude. They just want to help students.

The course has given me a new life and made me believe that I can do what I want to do. Now the course is coming to an end, I can honestly look back and say that I’m pleased I took the step to further my education.

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.
