What our students are saying

Rebecca Cooke

"I came to appreciate that getting older is an individual experience. Over time, I assisted my parents with appointments and general errands. I now feel I am ready for a change. I know I have a lot of life experience to offer as well as my knowledge from past careers and qualifications. Nothing is ever wasted in life. You never stop learning."
