Amanda Steward is on a pathway to success after joining Bournville College at just 16 years old. Amanda, who studies within the Supported Learning Faculty, is now progressing towards her dream job of working as a classroom assistant.

“I have had a really positive experience in coming to Bournville College. I wasn’t really sure if I could cope at a 6th form school and after discussing it with my mum, I decided coming to college was

the right pathway for me. I’ve had a really great experience at college with both very supportive teachers and making great friends. I’ve had such a good experience that even my siblings now attend the college.

The college has a great atmosphere with great range of facilities for students and lots of fun trips. There is lots of support available for students, all you need to do is ask and the teachers are happy to help. I’ve progressed through a number of courses at the college and I’m now on the pathway to my dream job, a classroom assistant.” Amanda commented.

Bournville College offers a wide range of externally accredited programmes for students with learning difficulties and disabilities from 16 years old, which aim to introduce students to a variety of vocational subjects and develop both their basic life and employability skills.

“We are delighted to see Amanda’s progression in the college and Amanda has grown in confidence since joining the college. Students benefit from many extra activities, such as rewarding educational trips and an enrichment programme designed to develop personal and social skills in a supportive environment.” Christine Daly, Head of School for Supported Learning commented.
