"I've always dreamt about a career in the RAF, so when Middlesbrough College came in to visit my school I was really impressed to hear about the facilities and opportunities on offer.

"I'd also heard about the good reputation at the College which was an important factor to me. 

"When I first enrolled onto the College I knew a few people but settling in was really easy thanks to our induction activities.

"The course is great. There's a balanced mix of practical and theory to help us take in each subject which I like. 

"We get to partake in a lot of outdoor activities and there are loads of trips available to us. We have the chance to visit London and take a tour of parliament, visit the criminal courts and see the tower of London. There is also a trip in our second year where we can go overseas to the likes of Poland or Berlin. There are so many opportunities available to us on the course which is a real selling point.

"The teachers are very knowledgeable and are always willing to answer any questions. They make lessons engaging which definitely helps you to remember each subject.

"If you're thinking about coming to Middlesbrough College, I'd say to just go for it! You get a good amount of knowledge, experience and UCAS points, so if you're willing to knuckle down you will really like it here. I feel like the course has given me the skills for the next step!"
