What our students say

  • The facilities help me with my course. The sports hall, gym and the equipment on offer is great and this will help me to get some good grades on the course. Hopefully I can then progress to Level 3.

    Jordan CampbellLevel 2 Diploma in Sport

  • I chose this course as I am a foster carer and wanted to learn counselling skills to help children. I have learned so much about myself as a person throughout the counselling courses leading to the foundation degree and also in the way I relate to others. The staff and the other students make the course a very supportive environment to learn. I love the course and hope to go on to achieve an honours degree. Then go on to counsel children.

  • I really like having the opportunity to study cabin crew and resort rep alongside my main course. These courses have really opened up my future career options once I leave the college.

    Charlotte WhighamLevel 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Travel & Tourism

  • Having a difficult time in my life and come out the other side I decided that I wished to help others in similar situations. I have been given the "Tool Kit" for life and this course is teaching me how to use it. My aim is to complete the course and move forward to the L3. My long term goal is to do the Foundation Degree and then hopefully the Honours Degree after which I would like to gain employment working in the field of substance misuse. Under the guidance of an excellent Tutor, (Rob McGinley), the work we do is challenging and exciting and gives massive potential for personal growth and development.
