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.

Beth Funge

Health and Social Care

Whilst studying a full-time course at CWA, I was doing work experience at Aspires, which I really enjoyed. I decided I wanted to gain more hands-on experience, rather than reading from a book and approached Aspires about an apprenticeship. I am more of a practical person and wanted to gain my knowledge and experience from doing the job.

A typical working day involves setting up work for the day ahead ensuring that there is a job suitable for everyone’s needs. Working within in the care sector, you find that you may need to provide personal care as well as emotional support for the residents if required.

"I enjoy the workshops at college and meeting others that are studying apprenticeship courses too."
