Community student Hilda Enchill
Hilda Enchill, aged 29, enrolled on functional skills courses in English and maths at one of the college’s community locations so that she could improve her skills and be able to help her children with their homework.
She said: “Enrolling on the courses has made me more active and encouraged me to socialise with other parents at the school.
“The tutors are excellent and they explain everything to you really simply so you can understand it easily.
“I enjoy studying out in the community because I am learning with other people in the same situation as me. We have all been out of education for some time and the tutors understand that we all have family commitments.”
