Caroline Openshaw, Head of Public Services
“I’m going on to the HND in Public Services at College in September. The career I have in mind is the Police force and the HND will open more doors for me and give me the opportunity to pursue my dream. I never saw myself going to university, but now I’m looking forward to completing my HND and doing my top-up at university.”
