Ashleigh Brown

Course: Level 3 Sport

Previous school: Consett Academy

Ashleigh was looking for a practical course to develop her skills.

She said:

“My experience at New College Durham was engaging, interesting and educational. I gained a lot of support from my lecturers and tutors throughout my learning. The personal support offered was also excellent, I received a lot of help to apply for a degree to take the next step.

“The course was really enjoyable and was very interactive, which suited my learning style. It was also a bonus that we received free bus travel to get to and from college during term time. The sport facilities were also very good and the campus itself was modern.

“I went on to study Applied Sport and Exercise Science at Northumbria University and I am now working in Public Health at Sunderland City Council. I am currently working towards gaining a degree in Public Heath to then secure a role as a Public Health Practitioner.”

Ashleigh works in Public Health for Sunderland City Council and is completing a degree in Public Health to specialise her skills.
