Student Profile.

Name: Emily Evans
Course: CACHE Level 3 Diploma
School: The Hurst Community College

BCoT student, Emily Evans, is celebrating a successful application to Norland College, the prestigious establishment dedicated to 'providing the very best Early Years education and training'.

17 year old Emily, from Highclere, joined BCoT straight from school onto the Level 3 Childcare course.

Emily thoroughly enjoyed the course and decided Early Years Education is where she wants to make her career. Applying to Norland College - known for its exclusivity - seemed like a ‘long shot’ but, with BCoT’s help through the UCAS application, Emily was invited for an interview. As part of that process, she also had to give a presentation, travelling to the Norland’s historic site in Bath for the day.

Her trip was successful; Emily has accepted her offer to start in September 2016.

Meanwhile, Emily is getting ready for this next chapter of her life to begin.
As you can see from the photo, she has already got her uniform sorted!
