What our students say



"I’ll always give City College a lot of credit when it comes to my work ethic. I found that I was able to reach a level of maturity at the College because there’s mutual respect between the students and the staff."
Simon Duncan, Franchisee/Head Chef, Preston Park Tavern





“The teaching in City College’s hairdressing department is excellent and I was supported and encouraged the whole way through the process of being in Worldskills.”
Amy Cadwallader, WorldSkills ‘Highly Commended’




"The course is taught in a way that keeps you interested and the fact that we're treated like adults means that there’s a lot of respect between the tutors and the students. The facilities are excellent and I like the team spirit that we've built up on the course. When I first started, I struggled with some aspects of it but the tutors adapted their style of teaching to suit me and I’m really happy with how I've progressed. I've got a lot of confidence in my skills now and think that the College has prepared me really well for getting into employment after I've finished my studies."
Darius Bilinda, Former Motor Vehicle student




"Being at City College has really helped me progress with my cooking and baking because all the tutors are really nice and helpful and supported me when I was developing my pastry skills."
Lois Budd, BUPA National Bake-Off Winner




"Being at City College gave me the qualifications necessary to be considered for a role as an IT Technician. The course taught me the essential things I needed to know when it came to good practice in IT and because the tutors had worked in the IT industry themselves, it was really helpful that they could share their experiences and knowledge."
Mark Deacon, Former Computing student


"I can honestly say that being at City College over two years was one of the best and most rewarding experiences of my life. It re-awakened a whole creative part of me that, over the years, because other more pressing things came along, has been dormant. I can't praise the tutors, technicians and support staff enough. They have been absolutely amazing. As students, we are so lucky to have such brilliance at our disposal, with such wonderful facilities and in such a brilliant area of the city."
Clare Evans, Former Art & Design Foundation student
