Olive Grove Campus

Ayesha said: "I'm the only girl in the class and I’ve found the course really enjoyable throughout. I really like all the practical work that we get to do and the new building and facilities are amazing. It’s really important that young women are made more aware of their options and the careers they can have in this sector.

Some people still are not aware that you can get into university by studying vocational qualifications; it’s not just A Levels that universities accept. After I finish my course at The Sheffield College, my ambition is to go onto study for a degree in Engineering and get a career in the sector.”
