Why the Level 2 & 3 Diploma course?

I left school without the qualifications I needed, however Rockley offered me a GCSE resit alongside the Level 2 course.

What made you choose to study at Rockley rather than stay at your school sixth form or go to a bigger college?

I wanted to get out onto the water and be near the coast whilst studying and Rockley College provided this. It seemed to be much more exciting compared to being in a classroom each week.

What do you like about studying at Rockley?

I like the relationship between instructor and students as it is a professional, yet more relaxed relationship than that with a lecturer or teacher.

Any wise words?

Learn how to switch into work mode from coming off the water - work can pile up faster than expect if you are not ‘on it!’

What are your dreams and aspirations or your future career plans and goals?

Short term I would like to instruct - long term I don’t really know yet!

Would you recommend studying your course to other students and why?

If a student is a more practical learner, they will enjoy the course more than a student who works best through reading and writing.

Is there a particular staff member that has inspired you at Rockley and why?

Matt – he’s very passionate about watersports which makes me more motivated to participate.
