  2. Personal & Social Development to help you in life and work

I chose Shipley College as I thought it would help me to achieve my goals. There is lots of support and lots to get involved with. I really like the practical lessons, especially football. After this course, I would like to continue to study sport courses and eventually one day join the Police.
