Ella Spencer - Early Years Educator Level 3

  • School: Bowland High School & Performing Arts College
  • Studied: Early Years Educator Level 3

I chose Blackburn College because I had heard multiple positive experiences about the courses, tutors and College environment. I also chose the College because they provided lots of information and support at an Open Event and the staff helped me pick the course that was best suited to me.

I most enjoyed the work placements because they gave me real life experience. The work placements also helped me to put the theories we learnt at the College, into practice.

Blackburn College prepared me for my future career by giving us opportunities to do 4 different work placements. These placements helped me figure out what age of children I wanted to work with and helped me realise where my strengths are. They prepared us by giving us real experiences with varying ages of children.

My tutors supported me to achieve my goals by being easily approachable and always available for help if needed. They pushed me to achieve highly and encouraged us to plan for the future and also gave us advice on how to achieve what we wanted.

I am currently working as a Home Tutor in the Australian outback. I am working alongside the School of the Air to educate two boys whose family live and work on a cattle station near Broome in Western Australia.
