Coming to Lewisham College gave me time to truly think about what I wanted to do as an undergraduate student, it really helped my decision to study for a Master’s afterwards – particularly the 'Professional Development' module.

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.

In certain cases – for example when discussing a resident’s Food Bank eligibility – you need to be particularly considerate and careful about confidentiality to avoid possible embarrassment to the resident.
