Gower College Swansea helped Alex Davies find his true career path, working with young children.
Since 2015, he has completed Levels 1 and 2 in Children’s Care Learning and Development (CCLD) and is well on his way to completing Level 3 Diploma in CCLD. In addition, Alex completed courses in Emergency First Aid and Paediatric First Aid.
What has set 21-year-old Alex apart from other learners is his outstanding commitment in the face of adversity. Difficulties at school and in his home life, coupled with a daily three-hour round bus trip to college, has shown his determination to succeed and has made him a role model who can inspire other learners.
“I am grateful for the college supporting me with my finances in tough times. My desire to achieve my life goal of gaining my dream job in working with children made it easier for me to spend that time on the bus.”
