Foundation students are eager to get started

Telford College showcased its latest range of foundation learning courses at a drop-in open event on the Haybridge campus.

Tutors and current students were on hand to explain about the courses starting in September, and give visitors a tour of facilities around the campus.

Year 10 student Leah Faulkner-Campbell, who visited with her family, is relocating to Telford College from Ormiston SWB Academy in Bilston, near Wolverhampton.

She said: “My dad lives in Telford, and he found out about the open event on the college’s website.”

“I enjoyed the event and the tour; it was very useful. I met Anna Dowdall, an art and design tutor at Telford College, who explained the courses and showed me some of the students’ work. The college looks great, and I hope to start here in September.”

Foundation learning is a national programme for those working predominantly at entry level or level one, offering personalised programmes helping learners to thrive in today’s rapidly changing economy.

The government-backed programme is aimed at supporting all young people to achieve their full potential, based on their aptitudes, abilities and interests.

Chris Wain, director of student services at Telford College, added: “We offer courses from entry level up to degree level, so we’ve always got something for everyone.

“Our foundation learning courses support students with lower grades, with the intention to help them progress through the college and into great careers.”
