“I never thought I would become a teacher after working in industry for so many years, but it has been a great move for me. I enjoy working at the college and learn new skills each week. The college has encouraged me to get my teaching qualification and seeing students' progress gives you a really good feeling.” Barry, Electrical & Plumbing Lecturer at UCG
“The Kings Cross Construction Skills Centre was a great place to start my Electrician training. Being within a smaller focused environment I was supported throughout my time there and my teacher, Tom was great”. Electrical Student Sam Hardy (now an electrician apprentice with Camden Council)
