“I like the friendly students and staff – I’m having a good time! What the teachers are teaching me helps me when I’m working onsite with my job.”
“It is great to have the ‘real’ hospital ward to practice in. I have also been given lots of information from people such as placement officers and HE staff to help plan for my future.”
“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.”
