Lauren King 2

After completing her health & social care course at the college, Lauren progressed on to Edge Hill University to study psychology and is now completing a master's degree in counselling and psychotherapy.

Lauren says: "Words cannot express the eternal gratitude I have for all the staff and tutors who have supported me, taught me and in so many ways shaped me into who I am today. I know for a fact that I would not have achieved half as much as I have if it were not for the college and the amazing staff."

Since leaving the college with a triple distinction in Level 3 Sport, James McCall has achieved a BSc (Hons) in Sports Science from John Moores University, become a successful personal trainer, and even opened his own gym. However, James wanted to use his skills to give back and worked hard to secure a sort-after position with Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service!

He said: “Doing a technical qualification was so much better for me and set me up for my career perfectly. Now, I work in a practical environment every day! Focusing on sport, I learned the importance of staying physically fit, but also how to work well in a team and how to communicate effectively. As you can imagine, these are essential qualities for any firefighter."

“If you want your dream, you’ve got to be willing to achieve it.” These are the wise words that Mark and Jenny, our travel and tourism tutors, told alumni student Georgia Hill.

Not only did Georgia achieve her dream, but she is also thriving in it! Former Golborne High School pupil Georgia joined the college on the Level 3 Travel & Tourism course and has now landed her dream job working as cabin crew for Ryanair.

She said: “My college course has opened so many doors for my future, my tutors were so helpful and aspirational, and they wanted to see me achieve my best. I would 100% recommend this course to anybody looking at starting a career in the aviation industry.”

Bobbi Nicole Designs

Former Level 3 Art & Design student Bobbi Watkins used her time at Warrington & Vale Royal College as a springboard to success, having come to the college to pursue her dream career as a graphic designer. Now, Bobbi is studying at Manchester Metropolitan University and is well on the way to achieving this goal and has even started her own successful branding design company.

Looking back fondly at her time with the college, Bobbie said: “I loved my course and I am so grateful for the opportunities offered to me at the college. My course gave me a clear pathway to university, and the skills I've learned have helped me massively in my degree and business so far.”

We'd love to hear about your experience at Warrington & Vale Royal College!
