Zac Wright

Course: Level 1 Carpentry & Joinery
Previous school: Fyndoune Community College

Zac joined New College Durham as part of the Choices Plus programme, a special entry route for students joining late in the academic year.

Despite starting late, Zac was committed to his studies and, with the extra support he was given, he completed his programme well ahead of most of his class.

“The thing I liked most about New College Durham was the people, the staff are very professional and supportive and the other students were friendly.

“I started on choices plus in January and was given a lot of support from my tutor and PLC which helped me to settle into the group and complete my course. I learnt all the skills needed to allow me to progress onto an apprenticeship.”

Zac described his time at New College Durham as enjoyable, superb and successful.  He will continue to study Carpentry and Joinery at New College Durham, on day release from his apprenticeship with the Esh Construction Group.
