What our graduates say about the course:
“The staff within the College are true professionals in what they do and at the same time they manage a friendly environment with the student, ensuring certainty and understanding is with each one as the different modules are completed. There is also a vast base of support for the individual which I was very impressed by; from the councillor to the course tutor, everyone around you just wants to see you do well!
I learned a lot and met many interesting and exciting people in my time in the college, all of which helped me to grow and develop to become who I am today.”
