Current students' thoughts on the past few months of learning with CLL...

Eileen Taylor, second year student on our Foundation Degree in Early Childhood

"I had very mixed feeling about commencing into year 2 on the Early Years foundation degree and what to expect due to the constant challenges of COVID-19 along with the new delivery of teaching. The terms “blended and virtual learning” wasn’t something I was comfortable or familiar with. With year 2 well under way I feel motivated, focused, encouraged and most importantly supported. This has only been possible by the constant support, guidance and reassurance from the teaching staff on the course. The changes in the learning style has changed but one thing that remains the same is the whole hearted encouragement and warmth from the teaching staff. The support that is being offered has been greatly appreciated also acknowledging the additional work that goes into delivering modules through a virtual audience, providing slides (with voice overs) has been invaluable."

Faye Tanner, current student on our BA in Early Childhood

"The current situation has meant that the university experience as we know it has changed completely. Luckily, the Early Childhood team have made sure that through regular updates and opportunities to contact them directly, we have been assured that measures have been put in place to support our continued progression."

Sam Glasse, third year student on our 2+2 Degree

"Although online learning is very different from in person, the content and support from course tutors has been really good. We have been keeping in touch with posts on course forums with individual thoughts and reviews about what we are covering each week."

Pamela McKenna, first year student on our Foundation Degree in Early Childhood

"The Early Childhood team have gone out of their way to ensure we as students feel safe and happy to come into university during Covid-19 and also arranging alternatives for those who are unable to come into university during this time. They offer at all times support and reassurance not just regarding university work but also with any personal issues we face and I can't thank them enough."
