"The teaching is really good and the teachers are so helpful. Last year I did ESOL [English for speakers of other languages] support and it really improved my English. The client sessions have been really good. The practice has helped me to remember everything."
“I was really nervous about returning to study, but now I feel so much more confident in what I’m doing. The teachers have been really fantastic, friendly, supportive and helpful. I really enjoyed the course and really love the college, so I’ve decided to come back in September to do the Level 3. I’ve had the best time at this college.”
