I loved my Health and Social Care course and the opportunities it has given me. In particular, I really enjoyed my work experience placement at Northampton General Hospital, where I got to see each department first-hand, as this really helped me to decide which area to specialise in for my career. After completing my course, I was able to secure a physiotherapy assistant job as well as a place at The University of Leicester to study physiotherapy.
I'm studying Level 3 Mechanical Engineering after progressing from Level 2. Both courses cover how to inspect and design components, as well as the business improvement techniques and the mathematics behind everything we do, which is key. College has given me lots of opportunities - I was the Manufacturing Engineer for our ‘F1 in Schools’ team, who went on to win the Regional Finals, and I also completed a work placement at TK Precision, who offered me a paid job immediately afterwards!
Northampton College opened my eyes to aviation and travelling. It helped me develop some vital life skills, make friends for life and make memories I will never forget. During my course, I became so much more confident. College was very different to school as it increased my independence and I felt in control of what I was studying. I am now living my dream as Cabin Crew for Virgin Atlantic, travelling the world and using what I learned at college every single day!
