“I had Fred as an English teacher during my entire journey in Enfield. First, I started by Studying entry 2 with him, then he moved me up to Entry 3 lower. As I was progressing faster, we started working on level 1 papers during the last three months in the year even though I was still in Entry 3.”
“Then at the end of the year I went to Park Lane to do a test for a GCSEs course, which I managed to get into. I did that Access course level 2 with 5 GCSEs last year and I passed them all, now I’m doing Access to Engineering which is a level 3 course.”
“My experience with you at Enfield was absolutely fantastic and was a good year of progression for me. Now in my new college I am happy looking forward to achieving more with the help of my teachers.”
“My experience throughout the course at Enfield was absolutely great. It helped me to improve my english everyday and in different areas, completing tasks that helped me and my class be more confident in writing, speaking and listening in English. However it is also a place where I met friends that I am still in contact with and also is a place with no discrimination and with teachers that will always be there to support you.”
“Now I am currently doing Art and Design Level 3 Textiles in Leeds City College and GCSE English. My experience so far has been amazing, the campus is great, the teachers have helped me a lot and the environment in the classroom is very friendly. I have enjoyed every class learning new things and doing what I like.”
