Early Years student Louise Whiddon
Louise Whiddon is studying for her BTEC National Diploma Level 3 in Childcare so that she can gain the skills she will need for a career working in a special needs school.
The 20-year-old said: “I have always wanted to work in childcare as it is very hands on and you are always doing something new. I have a brother with special needs so would love to work in a special needs school.
“I chose this college because the environment seemed better and more friendly than at other colleges I visited and the course offered what I was looking for.
“I’m doing a lot more work experience than I thought I would which I’m really enjoying and it will definitely help me get a job in the future.”
