Derby College was pivotal for me. I do believe, genuinely, that without it I wouldn’t be where I am today. The tutors were always very helpful. I still go back whenever possible. A few weeks ago I gave a speech to politics students at an event at De Montfort University, and in the New Year I’m going to go in and give another speech about what it’s like to work as a parliamentary researcher in Westminster. I am very thankful for what they did for me. I don’t think our assessor could have done anything better. He made the course very enjoyable in a relaxed atmosphere.
