“I am in the second year of the Social Care Diploma. The Return to Education course helped me immensely with my assignments and academic skills. I really enjoyed the many modules we did ranging from Human Growth & Development to practical subjects such as Word Processing which was such a help for writing assignments.
I met so many great people with whom I am still friends. Some have continued their studies and others have gone into employment. RTL has been a very memorable year and one I won’t forget.”
