Anthony has always liked IT and computers – in fact becoming a game developer would be his ideal career!
“I didn’t like school very much and didn’t have a very good experience so I was a bit nervous about coming to college as I wasn’t sure if I was going to settle in. The course was perfect for me though as installing software and building hardware is exactly what I love doing. I used to work on computers from home so a lot of what I knew was self-taught but the course allowed me to back up my knowledge with the basics. It was very practical and hands-on but there was an element of theory too, so there was a good mix. Sometimes I prefer practical learning and sometimes I like being taught in the classroom.”
After a difficult start Anthony found himself beginning to enjoy the course and college life.
“I have been diagnosed with Asperger’s and ADHD – so I was assigned an additional support assistant to help me in the classroom which was amazing. I sometimes found it difficult to keep motivated and on track but they never lost patience and the extra help I got was outstanding. They would break down the lecturer’s instructions for me so that I could understand them and helped me to organise myself in lessons. This is exactly what I needed and the additional support I received definitely helped me to adjust to being at college.”
Anthony is now progressing onto the Level 3 programme. “That is something I never thought would be possible so it goes to show how much my confidence has improved.”
