Finlay said: “I chose Blackburn College after spending a year at Runshaw College. I needed a change and a different approach and Blackburn was definitely the best choice for me.

“The thing I have enjoyed the most about studying at the College is the freedom you have; there is a good balance between your timetable and the extra work you do outside of class.

“Before coming to Blackburn College my education felt very restricted and I felt I was struggling for time. Here I have enjoyed the flexibility and have definitely felt more relaxed with my studies.”

He added: “The College has not only improved me academically, but personally as well. I feel more confident and easy-going and my people skills and communication skills are also much better.

“The tutors have supported me really well, they always pushed me to do more but never over-burdened me. I have had great balance between work and social aspects.”
