“I really enjoy my course, the way it's structured suits me way better than GCSEs did. I think for anyone who enjoys doing more hands-on work it's really good. The College has great facilities to do the work and it's always open outside of lesson time if you don't have the right equipment at home, so there's definitely enough there for you to access and to be able to complete your work.”
