After leaving school

I chose to study at

Derwentside College as

it offers an excellent

range of vocational

courses and is close to

where I live. Studying at

College has been great;

I’ve met so many new

people and made some

great friends. I love the

work placements on

offer as you get real

hands-on experience in

a variety of health and

social care settings. I

achieved my level 2

course with merits and

can’t wait to achieve my

level 3. My ambition is to

go to university to study

Mental Health.
