“Take advantage of any opportunities that come your way. The tutors will support you to reach your full potential. If I can do it, so can you!”
With a friendly and understanding nature, the former Brooklands College student is now working in the College’s Supported Learning department as a Learning Support Assistant assisting students with various difficulties and disabilities to access the curriculum. Harry Frow studied Pre-Foundation, Progression and Bridge to Foundation at Brooklands College.
“I was able to build on core skills, Maths, English and ICT while studying vocational options, childcare and sport. Opportunities were provided to participate in successful enrichment and work experience programmes, which resulted in part-time employment.” Harry explains that the College provides a good range of vocational opportunities for young people in the community. “I wouldn’t be where I am today without the support, guidance and careers advice from my college tutors. They were really approachable and easy to talk to. They helped with any problems I had.”
Harry also has a keen interest in Sport. “The teachers were really supportive and made the lessons as practical as possible, which made learning fun. I was also lucky enough to take part in yearly residential visits which really built my confidence and social skills.” Since leaving the College, he gained a Level 1 Football Association Coaching qualification and coached for Chelsea Learning Difficulty and Disabilities football club. He is also enjoying regular part-time employment as a steward and supervisor at Fulham and Brentford Football Club.
