Julie completed her qualification with us whilst working full time and has recently secured new employment in the NHS and has the following to say about her time spent studying at Coleg y Cymoedd.
"Having not studied for many years, the thought of Academic learning was daunting. However, I knew that I needed to overcome this fear and embrace the change with a positive approach. During my initial interview, Al explained the level of learning involved, and answered all the questions I had surrounding my fears of learning. Having worked in a commercial environment for many years, I had gained exposure to the foundation subjects of the course, it was now time for me to put this down on paper. The course work was clearly explained, and when I needed more guidance, they were there to support me. The tutors were Human, very different from my time in school, they engaged, listened, encourages and inspired me to research subjects I never thought would interest me. I’ve learnt so much from the course that have supported me in my role.
Committing yourself to your own development is the best self-help plan you can do, and I’m glad that I chose Coleg y Cymoed to support me through this.’’
