AbiAbi has lived in and around St Helens for the past year, she recently enrolled on one of St Helens Colleges free ITQ courses after attending our Open Event. Abi said, “I live really close to the College and was looking to get back into education. I had enrolled at a few colleges around the country but could never settle. I was temporarily homeless which was really tough.”

Abi explains, “I decided to drop in to the Adult Open Event at the College, I wasn’t really sure what course I wanted to study. I spoke to the Computing and IT tutors who were really enthusiastic about the subject. I really enjoyed studying IT in School so decided to sign up to the ITQ Skills course. The course content really appealed to me, the fact the course was free was an added bonus.”

“I really settled into College life, I had great tutors and classmates” Abi says. “I was a bit worried about attending College after not settling in other colleges but I felt at home in St Helens College. The tutors were really supportive throughout the course, they helped me learn new skills that will ultimately help me gain entry into University”.

Abi has since completed her ITQ skills course. She says, “The tutors on the course were so approachable. They saw I had a passion for IT and recommended I apply for the Level 3 BTEC in IT. I was really nervous, but passed the interview with flying colours.”
