Community student Nikki Mike
After being out of work for 19 years while she raised her three children, Nikki Mike decided it was time to do something for herself and improve her English and Maths.
The 36-year-old who is studying at one of the college’s community locations, said: “The children has all started school so I had the time, and wanted to build my confidence and gainthe skills I needed to work as a parent volunteer within school.
“I enjoy learning in the community because the venue is so local to me and all the class know each other already as we all have children at the local school.
“The tutors are all great and I am learning so much – my first language is Welsh so the English classes have been particularly helpful.”
