During the course I’ve gained outstanding skills that will help me achieve my goal of becoming a child psychologist. The placements gave me vital experience, enabling me to prepare for work and improve my practice. I have received conditional offers from five universities to study Early Childhood Studies and Psychology.Monique Buckingham – progressed from Colchester Sixth Form College
