Our student Edith
Edith was a support worker in an advanced dementia home when she decided to study a Health & Social Care degree. She feels the degree has made a huge impact on her life and career and we are proud of her achievements so far.
“I have loved every minute of it. I have thoroughly enjoyed the way I have been challenged by the tutors, the ever helpful back offices, and the interaction with fellow students on the blog. Arden was extremely helpful in guiding me with the student loan.
So here I am now, earning 10,000 pounds a year more than I was 3 months ago. I am now a Regional Trainer. I will proudly graduate in 2016 when I am 61.”
