Passionate about working with children, studying at Northumberland College helped Ellie achieve her dream of working in childcare as a nursery practitioner.

It has always been my passion to work with children and I knew what I needed to do for this to happen. Northumberland College provides a great learning outcome and I knew I would achieve well.

The support and attitude from my course leader. This helped me massively through my course.

That the information I needed was always provided and if there were any problems I felt confident enough to ask.

Outside of the college I did a placement; this helped me greatly for when I finish my course as it is gave me the opportunity to know what to do when I attended my first job. It is also helping me deal with situations I would not know how to handle in the real world.

That I would leave college with a diploma for my dream job. And support from my course leader.

If you want your dream job, work hard to get it!

That they should go for it 100%. I recommend Northumberland College because of how supportive it is and how passionate the tutors are about you being successful.

Also there are multiple resources that have helped me along way which the college provides, such as directed learning and my placement.

It has helped me go into my dream job and work to my best of my ability.

I am working as a nursery practitioner.

When working within this college your course leader will always be there to help you whenever you need – they are so supportive.
