You learn lots of vital skills on College Ready like how to conduct yourself in interviews and manage your time and coursework. I really enjoyed the course and became more confident with my presentation skills. It helped me get onto the Level 2 Performing Arts course and I can’t wait to start the Level 3 next year. I have always loved acting and singing. When I was younger I would always be dressing up and expressing myself through improv. College Ready helps you decide what you want out of your future – it is a very useful course.

I have really enjoyed my course and it has helped me improve my English and my confidence. The teachers are very helpful and give lots of support. The support staff have helped me a lot and the College bursary has been a great help for me to come to College.
