Elle Pickles Nursing Assistant, NHS Health & Social Care

Like many students, Elle’s course also gave her the opportunity to go into Higher Education. She’s now also currently studying Adult Nursing at the University of Salford.

“Studying at the college helped me to develop strong communication, leadership, teamwork and organisational skills. It ultimately enabled me to pursue a career in the job that I love the most”

Lauren knew that she wanted to go to university, but also knew that she didn’t want to do A-Levels. The BTEC route was perfect for her and allowed her to progress to Higher Education.

“Definitely do the course if it’s what you want to do. Just remember that you don’t have to do A-Levels to get into university”

Megan was first attracted to studying at the college because of the placement opportunities available. These were vital in helping her to understand just where she fit into within the care sector

“I couldn’t have done it without the Hopwood staff and the people I met along the way. I’m so thankful I get to follow my passion for helping people”

With a solid career in front of her, Rida couldn’t imagine being where she is now without the life-changing experience of completing an apprenticeship in such a rewarding sector.

“Without my time at Hopwood Hall, I think it would have been hard to succeed as much as I have. They taught me so much!”
