What our Foundation Studies students think

"I successfully completed both the PVP and the In2Work course at The College. I have learnt so much about myself and what is available for me if I work hard; the course has given me more confidence in my own ability and what I can achieve. I had lots of fun on the PVP course, made some great new friends and tried lots of new things such as metal work and catering. Once I completed the In2Work course, I have managed to get a job out of the placement I was given."
Daryl Eustace: PVP student

"I have loved the course and doing the work placement in the kitchens. I have learnt new skills from other people that I can use in the future."
Anthony Bull: SLDD student

"Since my son Anthony started the PVP course and finished on the In2Work course, he has become more confident and independent. So much so he became a Student Ambassador for The College. His work placement helped him to decide what he wanted to do with his life and he is about to start a full time course in hospitality and food. With the support of the college staff guiding him and helping him, we think he is going to have a great start in adult life."
