Victoria said: “I chose to study at Blackburn College because the campus was local to me and I was attracted to the great work placement opportunities.

“The College has prepared me for the future by teaching me interview tips and techniques. My tutor also supported me through my interview for my placement - they helped me gain confidence and have given me so much advice!

“I am planning on doing the Level 2 course in Health and Social Care and then hopefully I can progress on to Level 3 in the future.”
