Community Learning Course Feedback

Below are just some of the courses we’ve run with feedback from the students who benefitted from them:

Personal Community Development Learning (PCDL)

“This day out has helped me overcome some of my fears. Due to the size of Hugh Baird College and me suffering from anxiety, I found it helpful to be shown around and to be able to speak to somebody about these worries. It also helped discussing other problems with the lady from student services and so I have a familiar face to look out for if I choose to attend”.

“I never thought I’d be signing up for a College. I’ve always wanted to be a personal trainer but I’ve always been too scared and didn’t think I could do it. I now feel like I can actually do something with myself”.
