Stacy from Harlow
Stacy works 24 hours a week for a local specialist timber company in a demanding role helping new and existing customers with their orders and dealing with new customer enquiries.
In addition, she is a wife and a mum to two young children in a busy home. Stacy felt the part-time e-learning courses from Harlow College were a perfect way to gain some additional personal development. The 'study when you can' promise of the online learning programme allowed Stacy to time-manage and to fit in her learning around a busy home and work schedule.
The first course Tracy studied was Understanding Mental Health in Children and Young People. This Level 2 course is a nationally recognised qualification and deals with emotional wellbeing and mental health issues in children and young people. Having successfully completed the course and being awarded the completion certificate, Stacy turned her attention to studying a Level 2 Counselling Skills e-Learning course.
Stacy said: “I would highly recommend the e-Learning programme. You learn interesting and useful skills and knowledge, at your own pace and you also develop great new time-management skills!
“To be successful, I’ve become far more organised with my time and plan carefully where and when to study, so that I have peace and quiet to concentrate without too many interruptions; this is where the e-learning flexibility in invaluable.”
