"My sister came to Middlesbrough College so I already knew quite a lot about the campus.
"I'd also heard about the good reputation from other people so I went ahead and applied for the Public Services course.
"I'd known for a long time that I wanted to purse a career in the industry and have always been keen to help people, so the course made sense.
"I came to the College without knowing anyone so it was a complete fresh start for me - it was quite daunting at first but I settled in in no time.
"I'm really pleased I came to study here. I've learnt so much and feel like I will be ready for the next step after completing the course - my end goal is to work in the Police Force. We are also offered a number of work experience opportunities during the course which will be great for my CV.
"The tutors are fantastic. They are so supportive and have really helped me to overcome personal issues I have been through.
"I'd definitely recommend coming to Middlesbrough College - you gain key life skills and are encouraged to stand for what you believe in. It's a great place."
