“My six-year-old granddaughter is non-verbal autistic and I wanted to learn more about her condition to be able to better be able to support her.

“The Disabilities Studies course was fascinating, I learnt so much from it that will help both in my personal life, but also in my role at the hospital.

“I was worried about going back into studying, especially using all the IT, but everyone was really helpful and showed me how to use different technology, such as Microsoft Teams which we used during lockdown. I would encourage other people to go back into studying, especially people my age who might be more reluctant. I didn’t think I could do it, but I did and I’m very proud of what I’ve achieved.”
