Successful learning from home

We are always pleased to hear about the successful learning stories and individual achievements of our students.

Here is a round-up of the amazing work some of our students have been getting on with during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Helen Chapman, Course Leader for Travel and Tourism, reports that during the outbreak, Level 3 Travel and Tourism student Charlie Keen is using her time productively to develop her skills.

“Charlie has taken it upon herself to source some personal development opportunities in addition to her FE study programme in Travel and Tourism. To assist her in her future career goal of working in a hotel overseas, she has studied an online Level 2 Food Hygiene course. Charlie feels that by upskilling, this will give her an advantage over other candidates, as well as extend and strengthen her CV.”

Travel and Tourism Curriculum Leader Rebekah Morris said: “Level 3 students are engaging really well in their online learning, not just in their main programme, but also their maths and English. Many of the students are still working part-time, some of which have now become full-time, and are also supporting their families doing shopping for grandparents and elderly neighbours.”

Sport Tutor Enzo Guarini would like to praise Huddersfield League Football Education students for their efforts throughout this time. “Huddersfield League Football Education students have been working effectively over this period. They have completed most of their work and used this time wisely to upgrade their assessments. In addition, they have been completing fitness tests to maintain their fitness.”

Tutorial Leaning Mentor Laura Gray reports that her Sport and Exercise Science students have successfully completed another Connect badge, working to improve their employability and Higher Education prospects by showcasing and evidencing their Teamwork skills. They have now achieved 5 out of the 6 badges available with their final badge set to be completed when they take on their Mount Snowdon challenge upon returning to College.

Level 3 Sport student Molly Haglington has been busy completing online courses to enhance her CV, which included Level 2 Exercise and Mental Health, Level 1 Making Sense of Ourselves and Level 1 Motivation and Factors Affecting Motivation.

Jed Wright, Public Services tutor, said: “I’ve done online interview practice with the Level 3 Public Services groups and they have been brilliant. Students have even turned up for a call on Teams in a shirt and tie!”
