Paula's Media Course leads to University place
Paula Jadeszko arrived from Poland to start an ESOL course at Henley College and she could hardly speak any English. Her tutor says "when Paula first started she hardly spoke but she soon made friends and grew in confidence. Paula was very hardworking."
Paula then progressed to a full time level three media course at Henley College and she is now studying Marketing and Advertising at Coventry University thanks to her media tutor who encouraged her to apply. She also won a Governors' Award from Henley College for her achievement.
Lauren wins a Governors’ award and heads off to University
Lauren Hancock left school and started at sixth form to study French but decided that it wasn’t right for her as she wanted to be a photographer. Lauren came to Henley College and started on a level three photography course and is now at Coventry University pursuing her dream career.
She says ”I went from a sixth form without a dark room to Henley College which has good facilities. I am really glad that I have already been trained in the dark room as at University there is a lot more theory and the practical skills I learnt at Henley have helped me in my studies and given me the edge."
