The College is great: all the teachers and staff give you the space to figure things out on your own, but they are also there if you’re ever in trouble. It’s a really nice environment to work and study in – a mixture of independence and reliance.

The teachers and staff were always warm, welcoming and inspirational. I received a lot of technical support and benefited from great resources, and I gained skills in IT, numeracy and communications. The College’s encouragement led me to get the highest grade in my Level 1 course, which is something I never thought I could achieve.
