"My daughter wants to be a professional
footballer and progress her studies too, so
it was great to hear about the partnership

"Telford College supported Emma with her A level studies and her extended project, and also provided support and guidance which helped her gain entry to Cambridge. The college’s flexibility enabled her to attend timetabled tutorials, while also being able to study independently at home. This best suited Emma’s personal learning style, and we’re grateful to the college for recognising this."
