Angela completed both English and Maths at Entry Level 3 with Rotunda, a delivery partner for WEA, and is currently on track to achieve her English and Maths Level 1 qualification. Since beginning in October 2021, Angela has developed her self-confidence through taking on the courses:
“I suffer with self-confidence and require a lot of support from the tutor, but passing my Entry Level 3 exams reminded me that I should always believe in myself and continue to challenge myself.
“I decided to study at Rotunda due to the support and understanding I received from staff throughout my learner journey, I enjoyed learning alongside students from all walks of life, and Rotunda provided a safe and welcoming learning environment, which kept me motivated each session. I have gained confidence in my abilities and myself and I am one step closer to reaching my end goal of having a Level 2 Functional Skills qualification in English and Maths.”
