John works as a self-employed builder and comes into college one day a week to study towards a Higher National Certificate (HNC) in Construction. He decided to study at the College of West Anglia as he wanted a change in career but wanted to work towards a qualification that would enhance his existing skills and knowledge.
John said: “Studying at CWA is very interesting and challenging, the facilities are very modern and the teaching staff are extremely helpful. The knowledge and experience I have gained at college has given me more confidence at work and I would recommend the college to anyone. Being an older student, it had been a number of years since I had completed any studies, however the transition was not too daunting and everybody was well catered for by college staff. My experience has given me more confidence in every day working, and I have made some good friends that I hope to stay in contact with long after we have finished at college."
