“I really like that the teachers are easy going, but they’re very thorough. They have a good report with students. I like the HE lounge too as it gives adult learners a space to be in around other adults.”
“I enjoyed the in-depth knowledge I have gained from my course and the support that was available to me for progressing to working in healthcare. I have got on well with all my teachers and I have been able to access support from them throughout my time.”
“I like having an open classroom as it feels more relaxed and less like school. It feels like a workplace and you can collaborate more easily. If you’re considering doing a T Level it’s definitely worth doing as it gives you all the skills employers actually look for and not just a qualification.”
“I chose New College Swindon because the course looked interesting. I can to an open event and liked the look of the facilities, it was modern and had all the right equipment. The plumbing class has electric threaders, which is cool! I wasn’t expecting to have boilers and cylinders to work on too.”
