Maddy Barnett
Art and Design

“I loved my time at Brooklands College. The support and teaching has helped me progress to higher education (UCA) and has given me a solid foundation to build upon. Staff were very welcoming, understanding and encouraging throughout my two years at the college, making it a fun and friendly environment to learn and develop in.”


Sam Clarke
Art and Design

“I found my experience being at Brooklands College truly wonderful. Having taken an Art and Design BTEC I couldn’t ask for better art lecturers to help me along the way. I found that going into college everyday was anything but a chore because I knew I was going to have fun with both my peers and lecturers, whilst learning valuable technical skills that I could take with me to university. Having achieved all the grades I aspired to during my time on this course I would have to say that it was down to the one to one attention and feedback I received from my lecturer Gemma. This helped to guide me and my ideas in a detailed and structured way so that I would achieve my full potential. However the biggest advantage was the relationships I and many of my peers had with our lecturers. Not only were they our tutors but they were are friends, this allowed me to feel like I could ask for help anytime and ask questions that may seem irrelevant without feeling embarrassed. I only wish I could have been taught like this throughout all of my education.”

 

“Choose a course that you are interested in and you will have a great time at college.”
