Our Students Current students share their experience of New Campus Basildon

Oluwabusayo Salami Former pupil of the Royal School for Deaf Children, Margate I’m studying the Foundation Learning course in Caring for Children. When I looked around NCB I really liked how modern and colourful it looked. The College is friendly and I have been involved in lots of aspects of college life, such as going on trips. NCB is a great place to learn because you get lots of support. After finishing my Foundation Learning course, I hope to stay at NCB and progress on to the Level 2 course in Caring for Children.

Joseph Mulreany Former pupil of Woodlands School What I love about studying my Level 3 Sport course at NCB is that it is a hands-on learning experience. I’ve really enjoyed my lessons; they have been really interesting. After gaining my Level 3 BTEC qualification I hope to get a job. What I love most about NCB is the atmosphere and the people. Everyone is very welcoming and they make studying here fun. Anyone who is thinking about coming to study here should go for it.

Vivien Lynch Former pupil of The Integrated Support Service, Langdon Hills I study the Level 3 course in Health & Social Care at NCB. I really like the smaller, relaxed environment that NCB offers. The College has a more focused, mature attitude and this appealed to me when I was thinking about studying here. One of my favourite experiences at NCB has been one of my PSD lessons. We took part in a role-play and it really made us connect as a class. After my course I plan to go to University and train to become a social worker.
