Juggling family life and being the only woman on her City & Guilds course was a bit daunting at first but Kim was soon reassured, "The course was so interesting and everyone went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. We worked well as a team and it was a really nice atmosphere to work in."After completing three years of electrical studies with us, Kim is now taking her learning to the next level and has just started at university. She has nothing but praise for her time at Barking & Dagenham College, saying: "My tutors really inspired me. Their positive feedback made me believe in myself and that I could achieve more. Without them I wouldn't have had the confidence to start my degree. The College also helped me apply for university, they couldn't have been more helpful."Kim also took the honours by winning the electrical studies prize at the 2009 Excellence Awards, our annual celebration of learner achievement.Kim with the tutors who inspired her.
