The lecturers are all good as they all have first-hand experiences of working in the Public Services. They weave those experiences into the lessons so that we can all relate to the theory we are being taught. This makes learning fun and exciting.

I would definitely recommend the college to my friends and family as there are a wide range of facilities and it’s a calm and safe environment.
