HNC Construction and the Built Environment - Distinction

“I am so proud of myself.

“I am now a qualified site manager, working at The Casey Group but to achieve this, I needed my HNC qualification.

“The construction industry is male dominated and I wanted to show that a woman can work in this industry and also be the first woman at work to do this.

“This has been challenging, especially with having family at home and squeezing this into two years. It really did go very fast.

“I have had lots of support from Blackburn University Centre, I definitely couldn’t have done it without my tutors.

“The course structure and modules interested me and they were in a good order.

“My family thought I was crazy and wondered why I was doing this so late as a mature student but I’ve had so much support throughout completing my HNC.

“I would recommend any adult learners to come and study at Blackburn University Centre, the support available is invaluable.”
