"The tutors at Blackburn College were inspirational role models."
I had previously studied at Blackburn College along with my friends and family members so I knew what to expect. It was the right choice for me as it is local, convenient and I have always enjoyed studying here.
I enjoyed every aspect of the course, from learning theories and approaches related to teaching ESOL – to teaching students from different backgrounds. Best of all, I’ve enjoyed achieving the qualification online, which really helped with the balance between study, work and family commitments.
Blackburn College has prepared me for my career by equipping me with the skills and experience that are now creating exciting opportunities for me to fulfil my goals.
The tutors at Blackburn College were inspirational role models and I learned so much from observing them – as well as from the feedback provided via teaching observations. They always had great ideas to support us in becoming better teachers and were always available through email which is really important when studying online.
I now plan on moving abroad where I can teach English while always enjoying the sunshine all year round.
