Success story

Jade Symmons

Nursing and Paramedic Academy

Jade chose to study at CWA because the environment suited her and she was able to further her knowledge and achieve more.

“My most memorable experience has been achieving distinctions that I didn't think I would. For anyone thinking about coming to college, I would say that it is an amazing experience and so much support is available when you need it. I feel so grateful that people are around to support me and to see the effort that I am putting in.”

Jade is planning to go to university to study paramedic science.
