Michelle Yearsley

  • Volunteer at Imperial War Museum, Salford
  • Access to Higher Education

Michelle questioned whether it was the right call to enrol to study Access. After all, she was a mature student, a mum-of-four and a full-time carer.

These doubts soon went away when she started the qualification, which focused on Humanities. She found that the tutors were very helpful and the enthusiasm of others on the course quickly rubbed off on her. It wasn't long until she was certain she'd made the right decision in going back to education.

Michelle is now using the knowledge she learned through her qualification every day as she works at the world famous Imperial War Museum in Salford.
