Level 3 Health and Social Care student, Zoe Whitmore has continued to succeed and excel on her course despite the current obstacles to learning!
Our students never fail to amaze the college with the dedication, innovation and determination to their studies.
Health and Social Care teacher Suzie King shares a positive story about one of her first year students, Zoe Whitmore, who despite the college closure has completed her first year coursework well ahead of schedule and to a very high standard.
Teacher Suzie King said, “It is heart-warming that at such challenging times, students on the Health and Social Care course are continuing to work exceptionally hard. They are using online resources and class notes to help them complete their BTEC Foundation Diploma to good effect and way ahead of final deadlines. A big well done to Zoe for being one of the first to complete her qualification and to the highest grade possible. A shining example of self-motivation and resilience in these difficult days. Zoe you will make an outstanding Midwife with these qualities!”
Zoe explains more about her experience during this time and about the course and college in general.
She said, “During my first year at college, I experienced a lot of new things. However, being treated like an adult is one of the things I most enjoy about the college. The teachers treat you exactly how you would want to be treated within a college setting. I am really looking forward to my second year to finish off my HSC (Health & Social Care) course and hopefully go onto university where I am hoping to study Midwifery. I am excited to see how far I have come and how far I can go next!”
Giving independence to prepare students for their next steps is so important to the college so that students leave with life skills as well as educational qualifications. This is even more evident at the current time, with such a mature, resilient response to new learning circumstances from students across the board.
