“I am enjoying being back in education - learning, meeting awsome people and getting my confidence back.” - Craig
Staying residential was the perfect way for me to learn. As well as the course subject, which everyone is involved in, learning extends beyond the class room.
Being residential added to this experience, as one really felt part of a learning community.
Awesome tutors and a very friendly place. I wish I was still there.
I was made to feel that I did matter and that I was worthy. I was encouraged and supported when I thought I couldn't do it. Despite all the failures I had previously had at other places, I did it at Northern College because I was supported by people who believed in me.
