Feedback from our Access learners
Our Access to Further Education and Higher Education learners recently completed and achieved their qualifications. It has been another great year for the programme. We asked them to give us some feedback and this is what they had to say.
'Before I knew this course existed I could not see myself moving forward. However, here I am, a year later preparing to go to Huddersfield University to study a three year degree in social work!'
'The access course for me has been a challenging but life transforming experience. The nature of the course is intense and a key to realising one's true potential. The access course has allowed me to pursue higher education by equipping me with both study and interpersonal skills. The staff and tutors are amazingly supportive. The immense support that is employed encouraged me to attain the highest degree of perfection in my work. I would definitely recommend the course to others and would describe it as a golden opportunity to greatness.'
'This course has without a doubt required a lot of hard work and commitment. It was, however, really worth it. When the results portray your hard work, it makes you feel proud. It has certainly inspired me to go onto University and has made me believe that I can achieve what I need to to make a better life.'
'Coming to Bowling College has enabled me to have a chance at a better life. I have made friends in my time here and I have been able to go on to study Psychology at Bradford University.'
'I really enjoyed doing these courses. I felt like part of a family. Although the work and assignments have been hard it's been worth it. I can now go on to University and get a life for myself and my children. The staff and tutors have been really friendly and helpful.'
'I've been coming to Bowling College for 2 years and throughout the 2 years I have enjoyed doing the Access Level 2 and Level 3 course. This has given me a life changing opportunity'.
'I started this college thinking that it would be hard for me, even though I was working till late everyday. I found it easy and as the course got towards the end I was motivated to complete the course. The tutors have been very helpful to me and I think I would not have passed without the help of these tutors.'
'For the past 2 years I have attended Bowling College which I have found challenging and interesting. Bowling College has given me the confidence to achieve anything! This has also given me the opportunity to become who I am today.'
'Coming to Bowling College has totally changed my life. The work has been difficult but with the support from the tutors it is possible for anyone. I have met some fantastic life long friends and some great memories that will stay with me forever.'
'I have enjoyed learning at Bowling College and I feel that I am more confident than I used to be and I now find it easier to start conversations with people. I have loved learning very much and know loads more about different subjects that I did before I started. I am now ready to go to university and I can't wait, I am so excited but at the same time I am said that I wont see my teacher anymore because I think she's great and I'll miss her.'
'During the last two years I have not only enjoyed every minute I have made life long friends too. The college has completely changed my life. Last year I was a Domiciliary Care Worker, this year I will be starting a social work degree at Bradford University, I would not be doing this if it wasn't for Bowling College.'
'I have enjoyed every minute of my 2 years at Bowling College, although the work is pretty tough at times the support from staff is second to none. The college has enabled me to change my life for the better and have enormous fun in the process.'
