Why did you choose Barnfield?
“I was working as an Estate Agent having dropped out of two colleges prior and my Mum told me she’d seen an advert that Barnfield was starting a Music Course. She encouraged me to apply so I did. I sneakily booked my interviewer in to ‘see some houses’ so I could attend my interview!”
Why did you choose your particular course?
“I was in the very first music class at Barnfield, which was exciting. The Tutor Michael [McCabe] spoke so passionately about the course and his vision for the course so it was inclusive for everyone’s interest, career goals and abilities and it inspired me to be part of it.
“I left Barnfield at age 20, taking time out to be a carer for a family member, then returned at 26 to do my HND. This helped me give my life some direction, and started my pathway into teaching and set the foundations for my career.”
