I am really motivated
by Sabia - January 2016

My class is so diverse with people of different ages, backgrounds and goals, but we all get on so well and encourage each other. I hope to go on to a career in Social Work as it's an area that is close to my heart. I am really motivated to achieve my dream career.

Wonderful setting to learn in
Painting with Watercolours - Jeremy Taylor
by Sabia - January 2016

Jeremy is brilliant. His attention to detail is magnificent and he has wonderful rapport with the students. It has reignited my interest in developing my drawing skills, particularly tone, form and colours. It's a wonderful setting to learn in. I live locally so it's extremely convenient.

Inspirational and innovative tutors
Award in Education and Training Level 3
by Sabia - January 2016

The lecturers were approachable, gave timely feedback, encouragement when needed and were insprirational and innovative which encouraged me to develop. In addition, they have given me the courage and competence to build on the skills and knowledge I had to such an extent that I am now planning to combine my teaching qualification and my clinical experience to undertake the PGCE course for my career development.

The tutors are really supportive
Business BTEC Level 3
by Emily - July 2014

I love Saltaire, it's such a different setting to most other colleges and it really suits me. I think what's helped most is how supportive the tutors have been - we're only a small group and we really get on well. The employer sessions have helped me to realise that I either want to start my own business or work in marketing.

I've learned a lot since I started
Horticulture BTEC Level 2 Diploma
by George - July 2014

I'd known for a while that I wanted a change of direction and that I wanted to work outdoors. I would definitely recommend an Apprenticeship to anyone unsure about whether they should opt for education or employment as you get to do both! I've learned a lot since I started. I'd like to do the Level 3 here and then go on and start my own business - I like the freedom of being my own boss!
