Oliver studied Blackburn College’s Public Service (Uniformed or Non-Uniformed) Level 3 Extended Diploma and achieved Triple Distinction Star (D*, D*, D*). Congratulations and good luck, Oliver!

Oliver said: “I chose to study at Blackburn College because the Public Services course looked very interesting, but fun at the same time. It also provided the foundations for my chosen career and helped me learn more about it.

“The thing I enjoyed the most about the course was being able to learn in a practical way. I also really enjoyed going on the residentials with class mates.

He added: “The tutors were always there if you needed one-to-one support. If I was stuck, I was never afraid to ask for advice or help. They also helped with our University applications, which was great!
