Anna was grateful that her A-Levels introduced her to topics that she studied at university for her health and social care degree. She is now training to be a teacher.
“My A-Levels provided me with a vital introduction to behaviour theories that I have used throughout my health and social care degree.
I was extremely grateful to return for a work experience placement in the health and social care department at Sunderland College when they in preparation for my PGCE PCET. It may sound cliché, but I do feel that in some ways I have never quite left Sunderland College, as I still feel that the College has continued to support me since I have left.
After my A-Level results I started my mental health nurse training but after 6 months I had to leave my course due to poor health. However, after a few months into my recovery, I went to Sunderland College Washington Campus to study Level 2 health and social care. This allowed me to stay in education until I started my health and social care degree. The college helped me to feel that I still had a purpose in life.”
Anna progressed to the University of Sunderland and gained a degree in health and social care. She is now studying a PGCE PCET in order to teach health and social care.
