Matt's three words to describe Blackburn College

What made you decide to study at Blackburn College?

I chose to study an Apprenticeship at Blackburn College because I like the feel of the College and I knew I wanted to do something practical based.


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

The thing I like most about my Apprenticeship is the hands-on approach, I feel like you learn quicker because you're doing the work yourself and the fact that you earn while you learn. I was always practical minded so I knew I wanted something in construction.


What was the best thing about your course?

The tutors, they're really supportive and they'll always help you and they've helped me in the past even when I've been at work.


What are you going to do in the future?

In the future I'm looking to do a HNC in construction and eventually move into surveying.
