    Karen Armstrong

Being able to study close to home, Karen found Burnley College ideal to access, particularly as a single parent, as it could fit in with her existing family commitments.

"I loved every minute! It was scary at first, but the new friends I met became like family as we all supported each other.

"I learned that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. I couldn't even work a computer before I started. I enjoyed the experience of learning new knowledge every week and applying it in my work".

Karen progressed to UCLan in September 2012 to BA (Hons) in Children, School & Families.
