Where are they now?

Michael Hedges, working at Safe Regeneration.

“Thanks to support from the Learning for Life team and tutors from around the College, I have studied a range of different courses at Hugh Baird College. The tutors treat you as an adult and always listen to what you have to say. They are very calm when working with you and nothing is too much trouble. Any problems you may have, they will help you with. I am currently working at Safe Regeneration in Bootle as part of my Supported Internship. The job is great and get to learn so much. In the future, I hope to get a full time job and earn a wage. I’m sure the skills I’ve learnt at College will help me with this.”
