Do you want to improve your reading, writing, spelling and Maths? Do you speak English as a second language? Our full time ESOL course is designed for you.
I moved to Basingstoke in 2011 from Rome. A friend recommended BCoT, so I came to visit and really liked it - it's a really friendly environment.
I started on an ESOL course as I didn't speak much English (just Italian and French from growing up in Italy, and my parents are from the Ivory Coast). The ESOL tutors at BCoT tested my level of English before starting the course; they start you at the right level and push you to achieve your goals. I really liked that about the course.
I then moved onto the Travel and Tourism course, where I'm learning new skills all the time. The tutors are fantastic; their experience in the industry means they really know what they're talking about. To someone thinking of doing this course, I'd say: it's a great choice, you won't regret it - it meets all of my expectations.
I am also a Student Ambassador at BCoT. I love helping out and like the fact that you meet lots of people - both in and out of College. I enjoy sharing my experiences at BCoT with visitors.
After BCoT, I'm going to look at going to study Travel and Tourism at University, perhaps in Winchester or London. To get there, I'm going to re-take the modules I haven't already got distinctions in to improve my overall grade! I can't put my finger on a stand-out moment at BCoT - all my days here have been memorable!
