Having studied Catering and Hospitality last year, she’s moved on to start a one-year
Professional Patisserie and Confectionary Level 2 course, and said she’s glad she chose Lincoln College.
“I chose Lincoln College because it is the college that I know the most about and the only college I chose to visit on open days.
“The facilities the college has to offer are great and include areas such as the library, canteen, student common room, gym and many others. Each is finished to a high standard and has anything you need and want for any course you are taking.”
Kylie said tutors are supportive and always on hand if she needs help and guidance and said choosing college over staying on and school was the best decision for her.
“Our tutors give us all the support they can offer. If you have a problem they will listen and help fix it and they are always there to talk to and are very friendly.
“The main difference between college and school is that when in college you have so much more freedom and independence with making your own decisions. No one tells
you what path to choose - they encourage you in the direction you want to take.”
The current Covid-19 pandemic means leaners have returned to education this September with new safety procedures in place across campus, and for Kylie it has seen her studying from college and at home.
“At a time when coronavirus restrictions are in place, for me it hasn't been too bad as we do a lot of theory work at home on Teams and Canvas. However, when we are in college we wear face masks and visors, we also keep a safe distance from everyone and there is plenty of sanitiser and cleaning equipment to use, so you always feel safe knowing everything is clean.”
Kylie hopes to become a pastry chef after leaving college and also has an ultimate dream of having her own restaurant.
