Former BFE Learner Daryl Spark has successfully gained a place to study a degree in health and social care at Sunderland University. Having completed L2 and 3 preparing to work in adult social care, Daryl took her tutors advice to enrol on an HEFC course at Tynemet college. Having successfully completed her English, Science and Quantitive methods exams, Daryl was ready to pursue her goal of University. She also has taken up a role within the NHS, supporting people with complex behaviours, and on a psychiatry ward.
Daryl quotes “ Without coming to the course at BFE, and the help and support of my tutor Tracy , I would not have been able to go on to study at university. The teaching and advice after the course was fantastic, and I plan to come back to be a guest speaker in the other healthcare courses to share my experiences”.
