In September 2020, an ambitious young mum visited Calderdale College to achieve her dream of completing a degree. Natalie didn’t just visit to explore her options, she came with the aim to change her life and provide for her young daughter.
With hard work, persistence and determination, along with support from the College’s University Centre, Natalie turned her dream into reality. She’s now working towards completing her degree in Business Management.
