I have really thoroughly enjoyed both the dementia awareness and health and social care courses. I was very anxious at the thought of home learning as I have always assumed,I didn’t have the self-disciplinefor it, however I have pleasantly surprised myself. It has given me a purpose during lockdown and kept me busy, giving me a sense of purpose outside of being a mum. I managed to allocate time to focus on the course when the children were sleeping and enjoy my time with them when they were awake. The support from my tutor Jill has been phenomenal! Regardless of day or time she has been there, helping me when a question has thrown me and also give me a lot of helpful advice regarding my future. Thanks to these courses and Jill I have made the plunge to go and study to be a nurse! Something I always wanted to do but didn’t have the confidence for before.
