I feel like I am constantly learning from my teachers, as well as developing relationships with them, this allows me to ask any questions I have.

Why university?

I want to gain higher qualifications for the career I would like to pursue.

Why Redcar & Cleveland College?

I’ve studied at the college before and feel really comfortable here. It’s also easily accessible and close to home.

What do you like most about your course?

It has helped develop my knowledge of the subject area and provided reassurance that this is the profession I want to go into. My favourite module is the Understanding Children’s Development module.

What skills have you gained during the course that you feel will help you in your chosen career?

I have developed transferable skills such as self-reflection, organisation and planning, which are key skills in practice. Alongside this I’ve grown in confidence with help from the tutors, who have really helped and supported me when I didn’t understand something. Working on my Professional Development Portfolio allows me to plan and reflect much more effectively than I used to.

Ambitions for the future?

This course has opened up so many opportunities for me. I’m interested in working in a nursey setting, but also considering becoming a teaching assistant or working with children with special needs.
