Student Spotlight – Tom

Student Spotlight! Meet Tom who received his GCSE English result today. Congratulations from us on a job well done.

How do you feel today having received your result?

✔️ I feel extremely happy and satisfied. It’s been a long time coming and well worth the wait which has taken a huge weight off my shoulders.


What motivated you to join the course?

✔️ I wanted a change of career and the career I want to go into requires GCSE English.


What plans do you have next?

✔️ I was/am also studying Maths at the same time with Aspire Sussex so I plan on working towards achieving my GCSE in that.


How did you find the experience of having your entire course delivered online?

✔️ At first I felt slightly apprehensive being the youngest person on the course however the teacher made everyone feel extremely welcome along with the rest of the class. I found the entire course and learning to be very effective and valuable when we’ve been put in small groups in breakout rooms and also reviewing PowerPoint slides each week.


What would you say to someone who is considering taking a GCSE course with Aspire next year?

✔️ Whatever stage of life you’re at, never stop learning and pursue your dreams. No lesson is always the same and you always learn something new.
