Working with Children & Young People
My self-esteem was not good before I joined Wakefield College; I was conscious that I had not achieved much in the way of academic qualifications at school or anywhere else for that matter. Now, thanks to the amazing support from my Wakefield College tutors, my confidence, sense of achievement and pride in my own accomplishments have all greatly increased, and I also hold a teaching qualification which enables me to help young students to make the same sort of progress themselves.
