Student Testimonial Read more...

Level 2 Engineering student, James Brezenski

"I chose the College because it is local. I like to do things that are hands-on, I was going to do Joinery but I chose Metal Work instead. I enjoy making things out of metal; I've made shelves and ornaments. I'm working towards getting a job or an Apprenticeship. My tutors are really good and helpful. Calderdale College is really good; I'd recommend it because you can do what you enjoy."
