Course: BA (Hons) Education & Training (Top-up)

Charlotte decided to study at New College Durham because she knew she would receive excellent support.

She said:

“New College Durham has a very positive reputation and I had heard great things about the support available. I really liked the small class sizes as I felt more comfortable asking questions and expressing my opinion. This also meant we received additional tutorials and support appointments.

“The knowledgeable lecturers were the best thing about the programme. They went into such great detail, especially in their specialist areas. I was also very impressed by the facilities as they were useful to both the college students and degree level students.

“I have completed courses from Level 1 to Level 6 at New College Durham and they have all been extremely relevant. Progressing from the Foundation Degree in Childhood Studies & Professional Practice to the top-up degree in education and training has helped me to secure my current role working as an Early Years Practitioner at Stepping Stones Nursery. Both the practical and theoretical aspects of the courses I have studied with New College Durham confirmed for me that I will always enjoy working with children and supporting them to achieve and succeed.”

Charlotte progressed to work as an Early Years Practitioner at Stepping Stones Nursery.
