Every year NEC helps thousands of students achieve their ambitions. If you want to find out more about what studying an NEC course involves, have a look at these four stories focusing on different learners.
Isobel Hughes, IGCSEs and GCSEs
Home-educated Isobel Hughes found learning with NEC to be a fantastic way to study for her IGCSEs before moving on to work towards A levels in a college. Isobel’s father taught her maths himself, but she chose four more IGCSEs from NEC to study at the same time. She opted for English language, geography, biology and child development.
Mark Ward, English language A level
English language student Mark Ward chose to study with NEC due to the very specific demands placed upon him by his job: serviceman with the Royal Air Force.
Sarah Yewman, Diploma for the Children and Young People's Workforce
When Sarah Yewman was looking to return to work following a break from her career to bring up children, she found an NEC course to be the perfect way. Her story was picked up by Teach Nursery magazine, which ran a full-page interview with Sarah.
Tracy Pettey, CMI Level 3 Certificate in First Line Management
With a busy home life and a six-year-old son to look after, mature student Tracy chose a flexible way of learning where she could fit study around work. She received sponsorship from her employer, with the agreement that she fitted the distance learning course around her home life.
