"I did it and so can you!"

17 December 2019

Rhianna Grabham studied the Certificate of Higher Education in Health, Wellbeing and Social Care at Middlesbrough College and is now on track to achieve her career goal of becoming a qualified Social Worker.

Rhianna said “My parents are foster carers and their compassion inspired me to go into a career in social care.

“I decided that I wanted to become a Social Worker- to help children in vulnerable situations. My A Levels weren’t related to social care so I needed a course that would bridge the gap and the Certificate of Higher Education in Health, Wellbeing and Social Care at Middlesbrough College did just that!

“I absolutely loved my course and I have learned so much during the one year I spent at Middlesbrough College. The course prepared me well for my degree in Social Work as I have grown in confidence and expanded my skillset. The College also provided me with the opportunity to go on placements at Ormsesby Children’s Centre and this gave me a taste of the real world.

“My tutors Jo and Lisa were absolutely incredible and are a credit to Middlesbrough College. I couldn’t have asked for better teachers and I am so grateful for all of their help and support.

 “In just two years’ time I will be a registered Social Worker and I can’t thank Middlesbrough College enough for helping me to achieve this.

“My advice to any young person who is considering studying at a higher level is to consider Middlesbrough College as an option. The quality of education is outstanding and the tutors are so caring and supportive. I did it and so can you!”
