Course: Level 3 IT
Previous school: 
Framwellgate School Durham

Rebecca came to New College Durham to join the CACHE Level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Education.  It was something she had wanted to do for a while but after starting the course she decided it was not for her. 

Through the Choices Plus programme, Rebecca was offered a place on our Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in IT that started in the January. She worked hard and completed six units before the Summer. She progressed onto the year 2 Diploma in IT, which she completed in June.  In addition to this, Rebecca also achieved an A* in a Level 3 Extended Project.  

Rebecca has since excelled and turned down a place at university to stay at New College Durham to study on the Foundation Degree in Applied Business Computing.
