Charlotte Buckley

  • Learning Support Assistant at Hopwood Hall College
  • Level 3 Extended Diploma Health & Social Care

Charlotte was born with the genetic condition Phenylketonuria (PKU); from the age of six she received additional educational support. Charlotte knew she wanted to work in a profession where she could support people in the same manner as many had previously helped her.

This drive to work in a role that would directly benefit others is what led Charlotte to study a Health & Social Care course at Hopwood Hall College. After excelling in her studies at Hopwood Hall College, Charlotte turned from a student to a staff member when she successfully secured a Learning Support Assistant role at the College.

“After receiving important additional support during my studies at Hopwood Hall College, a career in Learning Support became something I was very passionate about."

“I learned a lot about the industry and I definitely grew as a person too whilst studying my Health and Social Care course." “The additional support I received enabled me to enjoy learning whilst also gaining skills to become an independent learner. Being independent and discovering your own drive is something I think is key to success regardless of background and abilities."
