“I love the course! The lecturers are very kind and supportive. In one year I’ve improved my ICT skills and my English skills and I now feel confident about progressing to the Level 2 ICT course in September. My goal is to continue on to Level 3 and eventually work in an IT company.”
"The college is perfect. It's a very friendly place. I've really enjoyed working as a student ambassador. I've been able to learn new things and meet new people and improve my English."
“The teachers are really good and the lessons are interesting. We do lots of games, activities and trips so we can practice what we’re learning. I’m finishing the ESOL [English for speakers of other languages] course this summer, but I’ll be coming back to do art and design in September. I really like the college and I’ve made lots of friends.”
