Luwam Moges, a 23 year old support worker from Stockton-On-Tees is balancing work and education by studying the Access to Higher Education Diploma in Health Distance Learning programme at Middlesbrough College.
The new online Access course allows students to learn whilst they work to improve their future career prospects. This flexible programme is 100% online distance learning, allowing students to learn at a time which fits around their schedule and is unique to Middlesbrough College.
Luwam said “The course is really interesting and informative. I am enjoying pushing myself to read more and explore the modules in depth. The modules and exercises are easy to follow online and well prepared.
“I feel well supported from the tutors at Middlesbrough College. We have regular Skype calls and my tutors are very responsive to emails whenever I have a question. We also have a Facebook group which is great as we can share ideas about work and any questions that we may have.
“The course itself is very flexible. I enjoy working at my own pace and it’s great that I can study and work at the same time.
“It’s definitely a great way for me to upskill and move into a higher position in the Healthcare sector.”
Luwam has applied to study at university to achieve her career ambition of becoming a Radiographer.
She said “I am excited to hopefully be studying my dream degree at university and put all the skills I have learnt on my Access course into practice.”
