The tutors were very supportive and helpful throughout the course, and they helped me to gain the qualification that has shaped the beginning of my career. I have had a great introduction to my career, spending several years working in childcare for a travel company.

Early Years Student

Since leaving college I have moved onto university to study a degree in Special Needs and Disabilities. I never thought someone like me (who struggles academically would be able to get into university, but I did. My tutors motivated me and pushed me to do my best.
