    I studied the OCN Level 2 Award in Bakery & Patisserie. My course was delivered in the College's kitchens. There was a sense of community and a warm relaxing atmosphere throughout. If I was to describe my experience in 3 words it would be fun, exciting and therapeutic!

    My Foundation Degree course gave me the tools and knowledge I needed to progress to a Degree in Business and Enterprise. I recently started my own textile business in the city called ‘Custom Designs’.
