During the time Tayiba studied with us we saw her grow in confidence and ability. Tayiba was always unfailingly pleasant and polite. Her hard work and commitment to the course were recognised in the recent Coleg y Cymoedd awards where she won the Outstanding Achievement Award. The course team are incredibly proud that Tayiba has now progressed onto University to complete further studies and have no doubt that she will be an excellent ambassador for herself, the college and the course.
