What I would highlight: I chose to study Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport (Development, Coaching and Fitness) at Wakefield College because of the opportunities that are available during and after the course which prepares you for a better future. I have particularly enjoyed learning about sports psychology because I got to find out the important of being mentally prepared when performing and I enjoyed that the teachers threats us like adults and they offered excellent support and advice when you need it. My highlights at Wakefield College are when we visited Italy as part of our course were we did a lot of fun and exciting activities like white water rafting, up-sailing etc. I also volunteered as a Football Activator which was very beneficial for me because I enhanced my communication skills, team working skills and more. On top of that I got the FA level 1 football coaching badge for free and we visited Wembley stadium for training. Over my time a Wakefield college I have made new friends and met people that will help me with my employment in the future. Overall I have thoroughly enjoyed being a student at this college and I have got to see myself develop because Wakefield College has been a springboard to push me towards my aspirations.

What I would highlight: I started doing beauty therapy in 2015, not knowing anything about it. I have gained a level 2 diploma and I intend on progressing on to doing a level 3 in beauty therapy course. Hopefully in the future with the skills I have learnt from the tutors and staff at this college I will be able to work in a salon to gain experience and eventually work for myself. I am also looking to work on cruise ships and with the qualifications I gain from these courses I am able to do so. On this course we were able to get one to one training in certain areas such as waxing, make up and dermalogica training. I really enjoy this course as we have learnt to do a lot of different treatments. The college staff are very helpful and caring and pushed me to succeed with my course. If you're looking to succeed and work hard I would suggest Wakefield College is the place for you.

What I would highlight: I’ve spent the last 3 years studying Hospitality and Catering and I have to admit it has been fantastic! I chose to study Level 3 Hospitality and Catering at Wakefield College because of the opportunities that they offer and how prepared it gets you for life after your course. The three years that I have spent at Wakefield College have been amazing. I’ve met so many new friends and some of the kindest tutors, this has given me so much confidence in myself, which has had an impact on work outside. Catering at Wakefield College allows students to take part in the college’s restaurant sector where everyone gets experience of working in a busy kitchen and a busy restaurant service.

5.0 06/07/2016
What I would highlight: I am a first year A Level student and am currently studying 4 AS subjects, English Language, English Literature, History and Psychology. All of my courses are amazing. There are skills that are built upon in all of them, such as essay writing and analysis and so they all complement each other, but at the same time they are all different enough that it isn’t repetitive. I find all the subject matter really interesting and engaging, and the tutors are so helpful. If you don’t understand something or you miss a lesson they will help you go through the lesson if there are bits you don’t understand.
