Course: Level 3 Diploma Health & Social Care
Previous School: Fyndoune Community College, Sacriston
Laura chose to study at New College Durham as she had heard good things about the College and she received some great advice from the careers service about moving into healthcare.
"The health and social care lecturers were really friendly and helpful and made the learning process really fun and easy. I achieved a really good grade and got great feedback throughout so I was confident about pursuing a career in this industry.
"Initially, I didn't want to go to university but the support and encouragement from my tutor made it seem like the obvious choice."
"I would definitely recommend New College Durham because before I came here I never thought I would make it to university, let alone actually work in the care industry doing such an amazing job."
Laura is now working as a Food and Beverage Supervisor at the Marriott Hotel in Durham.
