LEAP - Thomas
Former School(s): Reigate School
Thomas originally joined East Surrey College on the Motor Vehicle Entry Level Diploma. Thomas had heard many great things about the College and came to look around for the first time at the facilities. Shortly after joining, he decided to take a study break and enrolled onto the LEAP (Learning, Employability and Progression) Level 1 programme.
Thomas is really enjoying his College course and has found it has helped him get back into a good study routine and built up his confidence. Thomas initially found it difficult speaking to large groups, but he now feels like he has come out of his shell and can contribute to class discussions and debates with ease.
“The staff are extremely friendly and East Surrey College is such a welcoming place. The support available from staff in LEAP and all around the College is the best I’ve had in education. My tutor Alam is good at encouraging students and pushing them to do their best.”
Thomas is looking forward to progressing onto Level 2 and aspires to study IT or Media course at the College.
