Amy is studying the Foundation Degree in Learning Support after finishing the Level 2 Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools.
“I attend the course once a week alongside work-based learning. I decided to study at the College as I live locally and I was interested in studying a University course qualification. I was on maternity leave before starting and have found that the structure of the course fits in really well with my young family and busy lifestyle. I also find the work-based learning great as I have been able to gain experience alongside studying, and I am now employed at Lord Scudamore Academy.
The cohort at the College is amazing and the facilities such as the LRC, refectory and the online support is fantastic. I use the LRC in the evenings to fit in alongside my work placement, which is really useful.
I plan to do a Top-up BA (hons) next year and hope to go into social work in the future. I would definitely recommend this course as it opens so many doors to different careers, as some of my course friends are also going into teaching or working in hospitals.”
