The College is great for older students. I wasn’t put in a huge class made up of younger students. The classes were manageable sizes and I was with people my own age, so we were able to help and support each other.

In my first year I didn’t think I could complete Level 1, but then I got accepted to Level 2 and achieved more than I ever thought I would. All the support from the College helped me to get through and achieve my goals.

I would recommend the course to anyone interested in childcare. If you are worried about the cost, make sure you research the financial help alternatives. I would encourage people to have a go as it will help them to better themselves.
