I wanted to try something new, exciting and different and Halesowen College has a vast range of courses and opportunities. I find my course in Art and Design exciting with excellent lecturers who have wide varieties of skills and expertise, helping you to develop your own persona and ideas. When I finish next year I hope to carry on with my education by doing an apprenticeship or going to university.
