supported learning student talks about learning lots of skills in Richmod upon Thames Colleges Personal Progress Course and progressing to a BTEC level 1 in IT at the London campus

Lots of different subjects

“My Personal Progress course has been really good as I’ve been taught lots of different subjects including maths, English, and IT which is my absolute favourite as I love computers. I’ve had some brilliant work placement too at Tesco, PC World and Maplin and they’ve all been really interesting. I’m now planning to study a BTEC Level 1 in IT and can’t wait!”
