    “I enjoy the freedom of being given a brief and creating work independently. During my course, I took part in some amazing projects, including transforming the College’s sensory room and creating a nursery teaching space for childcare students. The amount of time and support you get with tutors here is unbelievable!”

    “Fitting in studying around a full time job and a family was challenging but worth it. I now have more confidence and I have been able to use the knowledge and skills I have developed in the workplace. I was also awarded CIPD Student of the Year and the response I got from everybody was fantastic. It’s great to get recognition for your hard work.”

    “During my studies, I did a work placement with GSP Media, creating films for Motocross. This led to me setting up my own media company, Cheaney Media, as a freelance videographer. I have worked on global projects as far afield as Spain, Germany and Dubai."
