Future Ready Students Amba Georgia David Isa

Com­ing to Col­lege is an excit­ing way to build the future you want. But it can feel like a big step! 

We spoke to some cur­rent and for­mer stu­dents from a range of dif­fer­ent cours­es, to find out about their expe­ri­ences at Not­ting­ham College.

Amba was born with head-to-toe vis­i­ble differences.

For a long time she used make-up to cov­er up and hide away. 

But now she’s built her con­fi­dence and is help­ing oth­ers by vol­un­teer­ing for a char­i­ty called Chang­ing Faces.

Start­ing my dream course at Col­lege, and my cam­paign­ing work with Chang­ing Faces, made me feel com­fort­able in my own skin, and ready to embrace my dif­fer­ences and help others.

David was part of a group of our stu­dents who per­formed on stage at Not­ting­ham Play­house recently. 

We asked how it felt to get this oppor­tu­ni­ty while on a course at Not­ting­ham College.

Act­ing on a pro­fes­sion­al stage and in a pro­fes­sion­al envi­ron­ment like Not­ting­ham Play­house is amazing! 

 — David


Georgia, A Level Photography

Geor­gia fin­ished study­ing here last year and went on to university. 

We asked what it was like to start as a new stu­dent at Not­ting­ham College.

I went to Not­ting­ham Col­lege with no idea what I was let­ting myself in for. But when I got there, my tutor was just magnificent. 

I was so ner­vous, but she made me so calm, she always encour­aged me. 

She was just every­thing that I need­ed and could have want­ed. That in turn made the whole expe­ri­ence incredible. 

It’s a love­ly envi­ron­ment to be in. 

 — Geor­gia

Isa won a sil­ver Appren­tice of the Year award at the Skills for Health, Heroes Awards. 

He was recog­nised for being a true role mod­el in COVID 19, and for his ded­i­ca­tion to rais­ing aware­ness for Black Lives Mat­ter and the BAME net­work across Not­ting­ham Uni­ver­si­ty Hos­pi­tals Trust.

I am real­ly enjoy­ing my appren­tice­ship and get­ting stuck into work­ing on the ward. 

I have learned so much over the past year and look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing my stud­ies along­side working. 

 — Isa
