Alanya talks about her experiences at Nacro Education on our vocational courses, and the positives of learning in an alternative setting like ours.
I missed a lot of school due to my diabetes. I lacked confidence and left school with few GCSEs. Since receiving support at Nacro, I've achieved a grade 7 in English and a 5 in maths GCSEs. I'm hoping to go into nursing, inspired by those who've cared for me.Josh, Nacro Education learner
