Anna cross tells us her story...

After completing her course she wanted to tell you about her experience with Open Study College.

“I enrolled with Open Study College in 2008 and I am amazed at what I have achieved!

As a busy mother with a job that was going nowhere, I wanted to build a better life for myself and my children. I knew I would need to get a proper qualification but family and work commitments made it difficult for me to know where to start.

Luckily I came across the Open Study College on the internet and was amazed at how straight forward they made everything seem. I didn’t know much about learning from home but the whole process seemed like it had been made for me!

I enrolled over the phone on the Teaching Assistant Level 2 course. The friendly Student Advisor explained everything to me so that I completely understood how it worked. My course materials arrived within a few days and I was really impressed with what was included.

If there was ever anything I was unsure of, my tutor would be right at the end of a phone to help out. I didn’t have to rely on her very often, but it was comforting to know she was there if I did get stuck. I drew up my own time-table and aimed to study for about five or six hours a week. It was easy to study once the kids had gone to bed and I didn’t get stressed or flustered once. I had 12 months to complete the course but I had finished within about 9 months; in time for the school in-take for September.

I am now working as a Teaching Assistant at a local junior and infants’ school. My job is incredible and I feel extremely lucky to be working in a role that I really enjoy. Not many people can say they love their job, but I definitely can!”
