Emma joined New College Durham after hearing positive things about the university level programmes we offered.
“I completed the Foundation Degree in Childhood Studies and chose to progress at the College to continue my success. The programme allowed me to develop a diverse range of knowledge and skills, and I received excellent support from my lecturers, especially my course leader, Alison.
“The programme has set me up for a successful career and I have gained a lot of confidence. After graduating, I started working as a Learning Support Assistant for Gateshead Council.”
This programme builds on and consolidates existing knowledge, understanding and skills of working with children, strengthening the links between theory and practice.
