I have thoroughly enjoyed my five years studying at The Cornwall College Group. The teaching and support from the lecturers has been fantastic. I would 100% recommend studying here for anyone looking to start their career working with children. I have learnt so many skills on the courses that I now use day to day in my job role. I’m looking at lots of different options for how I want my career to progress, maybe becoming an Early Years Advisor, at the moment I’m keeping all my options open.
