Studying: Level 3 Early Years Apprenticeship

A supportive experience

Maaria's three words to describe Blackburn College

What made you decide to study at Blackburn College?

Studying an Apprenticeship is something I have always wanted to do.  When I found a placement for West Holme on the Blackburn College website I knew straight away that it was something I wanted to do.


What did you like best about Blackburn College? And why!

What I like best about Blackburn College is working four days a week and also to go college and learn. You're continuously learning and developing at the same time as doing something you love. I also get to work with lovely and amazing people at Westholme school who are very supportive and help me every day through this journey.


What was the best thing about your course?

The best thing about my Apprenticeship is doing something that I love which is spending time with children and helping them progress every day. 


What are you going to do now?

After completing my Level 3 Early Years Educator Qualification, I would like to still work with children. It's something that I really enjoy doing and I would like to pursue something in the future where I do work with children such as working in speech and language.
