Craig said: “I’m really happy I achieved a C in GCSE English as I needed the grade to secure my place at Nottingham Trent University to study Law in September. After working abroad for 2 years I decided to return to education and gain a degree as I was looking for a challenge. Starting the course was a little daunting but I’ve met some friends for life.

Megan said: “The C that I have achieved in GCSE Maths at Boston College is essential in the first step towards my future career – as I have now secured my place at Aberystwyth University to study Psychology in September.

“After working in an admin role with the mental health industry, I decided I wanted to move to the care side, and without Boston College this couldn’t have been possible.

“I enrolled on the College’s Access to Social Science, and I really enjoyed the experience. It was completely different to school and I felt like I received the support I miss out on at school.”
