Before coming to college I looked after my family and worked part-time with Clydesdale Bank. I wanted to change career and to challenge myself by learning new skills.


The College gave me confidence to achieve in all aspects of life. My communication skills improved and I learned to believe in my abilities. It was a life-changing experience which I would absolutely recommend to anyone.
I feel honoured to be Student of the Year and see it as a measure of how far I have come and what I can achieve. I can’t quite believe it. I’m like a new person and it is very exciting.


I have gained a job which relates to my qualification and now work as a Junior Analyst at Neogen Europe.


Catherine’s lecturer said “During her time at college Catherine continually performed well, passing all assessments on the first attempt. Her work was always well presented and she performed beyond the curriculum to gain a deeper understanding of the subject.
In class, Catherine worked well with others and was always keen to help. Her attendance was exemplary and she balanced the challenges of domestic and college life with foresight and fortitude.”
