Meet Kirsty Allen, Pre Access to HE student

Kirsty Allen had been out of education for a long time and after her 40th birthday, she decided it was time to follow her dreams. So, she took a leap of faith and landed back in the classroom at Warrington & Vale Royal College where she is studying the Level 2 Diploma Pre Access to Higher Education (HE) course.

Currently working as personal trainer, Kirsty would love to change her career and enter the healthcare sector as a paramedic. Kirsty is enjoying her time on the course and feels it is preparing her well for the next step towards her dream career, which is to progress on to a Level 3 Diploma Access to HE course here at the college.

Kirsty feels as though the Pre Access course is preparing her well for this, teaching her a range of study skills such as sitting exams, writing academically, referencing and managing her time. She tells us that tutors are understanding and helpful and that she loves the Higher Education Learning Centre – a dedicated area for adult students on higher education programmes to study and complete their assignments.

We wish Kirsty all the best on the Pre Access course, and looks forward to seeing her take the next step toward her future career by enrolling on an Access to HE course next year.
