Former student Frances Branch-Thomas’s learning journey at the College has spanned over many years. Frances has achieved qualifications in ICT, English and maths at a range of levels.
Frances said: “I value my education as a means to develop my career. I was recently promoted to Team Leader at work and I put that down to my increased confidence and expertise, gained by focusing on my education and qualifications.”
Having begun her counselling studies at the age of 43, and at Level 2 – Janet Cardy’s progress over the last five years has been impressive. Through hard work, tenacity and dedication she achieved a First Class BA Honours Degree in Counselling, validated by Middlesex University. Janet is now a practising freelance counsellor, counselling lecturer and is a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).
Janet said: “My academic achievements came later in life when learning became accessible and possible for me. I feel privileged that my qualifications have enabled me to join a profession that allows me to contribute something valuable and experience satisfaction and fulfilment."
