"My tutors were always available to offer support inside and outside the classroom. They also offered a lot of moral support and increased my confidence. I received a lot of valuable feedback on my progress. I am now going to Lancaster University to study Mathematics and Computer Science. I would like to enter a career working within these disciplines. The College setting allowed me to get ready for university life by becoming more independent and taking responsibility for my own studies."

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my course and the best part for me was the tutors. Not only were they great teachers and truly passionate about their subjects they also cared about student welfare to ensure that outside of the classroom I was happy. The tutors helped me prepare myself for independent study, a great skill to have when I go onto university."
