Julie Ann enrolled at Northumberland College after it was recommended to her by a friend. She enjoyed the experience of studying at college and her lessons, and is well on her way to achieving her dream of becoming a PE teacher.

Level 3 Sports & Exercise Science

I knew I wanted a career in sport, and I was originally in Sixth Form studying this, but it wasn’t for me. My friend came to the college and told me about the course and said I’d really enjoy it. So I enrolled and I thoroughly loved it.

Meeting everyone and just the whole experience. The lessons were always such a laugh and the tutors have so many ways to engage you in learning.

The tutors are always so willing to help no matter whether it’s academically or personally.

I’ve been to so many high schools and a sixth form, and no experience compared to Northumberland College. The tutors and all the staff were so friendly.

I am a teaching assistant with PE specialism at Horton Grange Primary School through Physical Education and Active Kids.

Studying at Northumberland College gave me the qualifications I needed for my career and the tutors helped me write my CV and gain confidence.
