Name: Timothy Smith

Course: Level 2 Auto Electrical

Result: Pass

Next step: Establish his own business

“Of the courses that I looked at and was interested in, it was only The Manchester College that covered Auto Electrical and I enjoyed my time there. I met some new friends who I’m still in touch with and I got on really well with the tutors. The best thing for me personally was the course itself, as I love learning new things.

“I would definitely recommend the College to others for its facilities, the staff and the way the course was delivered. I hadn’t been in a learning environment for quite a few years so the first week was strange, but the way the course was delivered made it all so easy to take everything in.”

Course: Maths GCSE plus Level 3 Music Production

Result: GCSE - Grade 5; Diploma - Pass

Next step: To work in the world of performing arts

“I started later in the academic year but the tutors were really supportive and put a lot of effort making sure I was up to speed. I found the way that my maths tutor, Jacqueline Chrystie-Lowe, taught us was a lot easier to understand than in secondary school and I’ve gained a lot more confidence because of it.

“I’m happy to have a pass and it’s a relief to get a subject that is really important.”

“I’m really enjoying it. I’ve always loved cars and I learn better in person rather than being online all the time, so I’ve enjoyed coming onto campus and working with the facilities.

 “It’s a really friendly environment and the tutors are really helpful. The facilities at Openshaw campus are really good so I’d recommend the College to anyone thinking of applying.”
