What started as a mental health boost during lockdown has now turned into a determination to develop her skills and start a new career for Lyndsey.

Currently supporting the NHS as a domestic assistant, Lyndsey has always had a desire to work in education. Despite previously achieving a level 3 diploma in teaching and learning, she still felt that there were gaps in her knowledge that if achieved, would bring her closer to her ambition. Lyndsey said: “I originally signed up for the first distance learning course at Stockton Riverside College to keep my mind fresh and help my mental health when the country went into lockdown. I saw the ad on Facebook and thought that the extra qualification could help me get one step closer to my goal. My experience was so good I ended up signing up for three more courses after that.”

After completing level 2 qualifications in Behaviour that Challenge in Children, Understanding Specific Learning Difficulties and Caring for Children & Young People, Lyndsey then went on to complete a Level 3 in Understanding Autism. She added: “My job is a busy job and sometimes the hours are long so it worked well for me knowing I could pick it up when I had the spare time. The sign up process was so quick and easy and the coordinator helped me every step of the way. I would definitely tell anybody considering a distance learning course to not waste any time, take a leap and do it!”
