"Spending one day a week at Blackburn College has also allowed me to socialise with others who are also doing an Apprenticeship and I’ve definitely made some friends for life as a result of this!"

Vocational Achieved Triple Distinction Star

"I experienced fantastic support from my lecturers and they demonstrated a genuine interest and enthusiasm for their field of study and for the students they taught"

English Communications Officer, NHS

"I’d definitely recommend studying here to others - there is simply no place like it! While not based in a city centre or capital, that doesn’t stop it from having a big personality and impressive reputation"

Business graduate Trainee Chartered Accountant, Beever and Struthers

"Something many people don’t realise is that you can fit your studies around working. I have two small children and the time commitment and locality worked well with commitments at home"

Engineering graduate Graduate Engineer, MWH Treatment

"The best part about the course for me was the teaching team. The level of support the tutors give to each student is incredible and they really helped me develop confidence in my ability"
