"I was looking for a job shortly after having my son. I found a job at Daventry District Council as an Apprentice Admin Assistant, which involved attending college one day a week.
"It was good to be able to actually attend the College rather than study at home. It makes it a lot easier to understand. I had lots of one-to-one time which was excellent. I’m now waiting to start Level 3 after passing all units.
"I learnt a lot and my tutor was brilliant, she wouldn’t just read off a board but demonstrated examples that we could all relate to. I’m not someone who learns best from reading text from a book so going into college and listening to a tutor made all the difference for me."
