Art and Design Student Jessica Head
Eighteen-year-old Jessica Head decided to study for her Level 3 in Art and Design at college as it gave her the chance to learn more about fashion.
She said: “Art was my best subject at school and I got good grades in it so I knew it was something I wanted to carry on, and this coruse was the only course that offered the fashion element I was looking for.
“I really like the course. The tutors push you to do well and there is a lot of help if you need it. The facilities are good and the college has all the sewing machines, mannequins, materials and threads you need.
“It’s better than I expected it would be because they give you a lot of independence. I even had the chance to go to Italy to work with a designer on bags and shorts which gave me a lot more confidence.
“I would definitely tell people to choose this college because they give you what you need, let you be independent and give you lots of experience along the way.”
Jessica hopes to move on to a foundation degree in fashion design before owning her own fashion label.
