Foundation Degree in Electrical and Electronics Technology
Previous Institution: Llanfyllin High School
My Foundation Degree is funded by the engineering firm James Fisher. I’m learning so much and absolutely loving it.
Level 3 in Engineering
Previous school: Holy Trinity School, Telford
Level 2 was mostly practical and this year on Level 3 there is a lot of theory and it's preparing me for university. I live outside of Shrewsbury and the transport links to the College are good.
