Angelica Gonzalez

  • Deputy Nursery Manager at Bright Horizons
  • Foundation Degree Early Years Childhood Studies

To begin with, Angelica was unsure as to whether she could complete the course because of potential language barriers. After receiving support and advice from tutors, Angelica joined the Foundation Degree course.

Angelica credits her two years at Hopwood Hall College with developing her knowledge and confidence considerably. Whilst studying, she also held a full time job as well as being a mum to three children.

After graduating, Angelica progressed in her career from Room Leader to Deputy Manager thanks to her higher level knowledge. She aims to soon become Nursery Manager and undertake her BA honours.

“I would advise anyone looking for a college to attend an Open Evening or speak to the tutors at Hopwood Hall College. I was scared and worried about not being able to complete the course, but the tutors ensured I was never alone.

“You have to take risks in life and believe you can achieve anything you want regardless of any barriers. You will be amazed at what you can achieve.”
