Mark Henderson

Course: BA (Hons) top-up Counselling Studies

Previous school: St. Leonard’s Catholic School

Mark was looking for a course to fit around his full-time job. He had studied with us previously and knew he would receive the support he needed at New College Durham.

He said:

“I already knew the tutors so knew I would be in good hands. They provided excellent support and were very knowledgeable. The support I had received previously was definitely factored into my decision to study for a degree at New College Durham rather than university. It was the best decision I have ever made!

“The atmosphere in the College was very welcoming and it was such a nice environment to learn in. Overall, I was impressed with the modern facilities.

“I had been thinking about developing my career for quite some time. Studying at New College Durham fulfilled my desire to obtain a degree and build my self-esteem. I am excited to progress in my career and use my degree to find a more challenging role.”

Mark is employed as a Fire Safety Officer for County Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service. He is actively searching for a job role related to his degree.
