Where are they now?

Feten Ammar, studying Level 3 Public Services at Hugh Baird College.

“I chose the Connect course at Hugh Baird College basically because I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. I knew I needed to get a feel for the different things I could do at College and this course was ideal for me. The tutors and all staff at the College are amazing, they made me feel really at home and were supportive all the way through, they are also really funny and make classes interesting. Another thing I loved about the Connect course tutors was how they worked with the College’s Student Services team to help find me the right course for my future career goals. I’m going to join the Police once I finish my current course, without the College I would still wondering what to do in my future career.”
