Helen worked as an Accounts Payable Supervisor for a restaurant group before realising that her heart did not lie in accounts but in the care of the elderly. Helen has lived close to the College for some time and decided to enquire about courses and careers in the healthcare arena which led to her commencing the Level 2 NVQ Health and Social Care course.

“I have found my course enjoyable and I like being able to relate my college lessons to my practical work placement. I loved my placement as I was able to work with some very dedicated people who were more than willing to share their knowledge and experience with me. This placement has inspired me to set my sights on completing a nursing degree and I know that I have made the right career choice.”
