“I have three children and have been working in care for 17 years now, however I wanted to pursue a course that would open up further doors for me career wise. I previously thought about going down the nursing route but wanted to keep my options open.
I came to the College to study the Foundation Degree in Health & Social Care as it was recommended to me by a friend, and they advised me what to expect. I find the tutors here really helpful and can’t recommend them enough. I am only in college one day a week, so the course fits well around my work and family life. After completing the foundation degree, I plan to commence a top-up degree at the University of Worcester.
I would say to anyone applying to this course not to be frightened of the challenges, as I have received learning support assistance which has really helped me. I also had some personal circumstances which made me want a distraction, so the course could not have come at a more welcome time. I proved to myself that I could do it, and I believe anybody can if they want it enough.”
