Everyone is friendly and the teaching is very good. I enjoy my practical lessons and the work experience opportunities given to me. I am hoping to get into a plumbing apprenticeship after my course. The facilities for my course are very good, they have everything we need to learn for the practical aspects of our course.

The tutors and staff here are excellent and the College is not just a good place to study in but to be around in general. My practical and theory lessons are extremely helpful and enjoyable at the same time. I’d like to thank my teachers for helping me learn and achieve in the trade I love. They have been very supportive not just in class, but even during lockdown, ensuring I was up to date with my work and also checking if I was ok in general– which is very important as well. The facilities for plumbing are good and always equipped for all. I would definitely recommend the College, joining here has been the best decision I’ve ever made.
