I decided I wanted a more rewarding vocation, and the extra learning support help was such a big help. The students in my class were lovely and we all helped each other out. I would recommend this course as all the teachers were very supportive and understanding. After completing the course I would like to work in a care setting. Then when I have gained some experience, I would hopefully like to go on to do the nursing course in a few years time.

I decided to do a course at Greenhills College because I wanted a change in career. The teachers were so helpful. It was a difficult year for everyone because of the pandemic, the help and the way the teachers delivered the course was amazing. They did an immense job considering it was not on campus. The time the teachers gave us to complete assignments as well as the patience they had with us, I don’t know how they did it! I am working now as a homecare worker, a job I thought I would never do. I love it. I’m going back to Greenhills in September to do Social Care and can’t wait. My aim is to get to work in a hospital or to work with children in the future. Who knows, anything is possible.
