My name is Georgia and I started studying at City College Peterborough in 2020 working towards Childcare Level1, within the months of me being here I have developed skills that helped me improve for my course and for my future. The staff have been amazing at helping me to build my confidence, support with not just functional skills and the qualification but industry experience outside of college hours. Working hard has now supported me to move on to starting an apprenticeship helping to shape my future.
My name is Jack. I am in my fourth year at City College Peterborough, and I am currently studying Supported internship where it will eventually end up with employment in work, where I would like to work within the retail industry. I am currently doing work experience at Morrisons manufacturing warehouse every Tuesday and Wednesday, packing fruit and vegetables onto palettes for delivery. I am really enjoying this and feel I may have found my future job.
My name is Tyler I am currently studying Motor Vehicles and feel there is an even flow of theory and practical lessons. I am always offered constant support from the tutors throughout the year. The college is always up to date with tools and equipment and testing equipment in the workshop. When I first came, I wasn’t confident with cars or tools, now a year on I am more confident with tools and will happily replace parts on a car. I am continuing to study here next year and hope to become a mechanic in the future.

Enrichment offers learners to explore topics outside of their vocational timetable to help discover new interests and learn new things about themselves. Enrichment clubs are purely for self-development and fun and do not offer qualifications alongside them but can support learners in expanding social circles and putting life skills into practice outside of the classroom. Enrichment clubs cover a range of different interests and make a perfect supplement for free time in a young person’s timetable.
