"The tutors help us at all times throughout the year and make sure we have a good understanding of the content."

Originally from Romania, Ionela started her Blackburn College journey by studying the English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) course, before studying the Business Level 1 course.

Ionela said: “I chose to study at Blackburn College because I felt they had the best education opportunities for me and all the tutors that I met were great! They have all helped me from minute one.

“I have enjoyed absolutely everything about my courses so far – the tutors help us at all times throughout the year and make sure we have a good understanding of the content.

“The College has got me ready for the future by teaching me to make sure I am always prepared and organised. I have also learned vital English speaking skills, which is important because of my move from Romania, and I have a knowledge of the Business industry which I’m looking to build on.”

She added: “My tutors have 100% supported me to achieve my goals. They are always on hand for advice, whether it’s giving us their time in person or through email – they are so responsive.

“I am now going to progress on to the Business Level 3 Extended Diploma.”
