College Ready helps you decide what you want out of your future – it is a very useful course and you learn loads of vital skills to make sure you can succeed. You learn how to conduct yourself at interviews and how to manage your time and coursework. I really enjoyed the course and became more confident which helped me get onto the Level 2 Performing Arts course and I can’t wait to now progress to the Level 3 as I have always loved acting and singing.
