• Studied: GCSE English Language (Grade 7), GCSE Maths (Grade 4)
My tutors at Blackburn College have been great

"I came to Blackburn College as I live nearby and didn’t have any UK qualifications. My children are aged 5, 8 and 10 and I have got to a stage where I would like to help my children with their homework more – especially as my eldest will be studying his Year 6 SATS next year.

I studied one morning a week and in the future would like to think about going to University. I am therefore thinking of studying an Access to Higher Education qualification in the future. Whilst my children are young I am however, taking things slowly and building up my qualifications bit by bit.

I am going to start an IT qualification in September so I can also improve my computer skills.

My tutors at Blackburn College have been great. They have already been in touch to find out how I did! I have got a GCSE grade 7 in English Language (equivalent to an A grade on the old grading system) and a grade 4 (equivalent to a grade C) in my Maths. It has been 11 years since I have studied anything so I am really pleased with my results."
