“I enjoyed the variety of animals we could work with and that every pratical session was different. One day you could be setting up new enclosures and the next you could be doing full clean outs of the aquatics.”
“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 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.”
