Rose described Sunderland College as fun, exciting and full of opportunities.
While studying at the college, Rose took part in extra-curricular activities to enhance her learning.
She said: “I joined Sunderland College to gain experience to enhance my career prospects, but I never imagined I’d have as many hands-on opportunities as I have.
“I’ve loved the variety and gaining practical experience that is linked to the industry I want to go into has been amazing. I’ve been able to try lots of different roles, which has broadened my horizons.
“I chose the BTEC as I wanted to learn practically and the course did not disappoint. I’ve been involved in various showcases, and have had a taste of what to expect from the industry I want to go into.”
