“Reaseheath gave me the skills I needed to start my own business. From the practical experience working in the professional bakery to gaining additional qualifications such as food hygiene and health and safety, I use so much from everything that I learnt at Reaseheath each day at work. I started college and didn’t know anyone, after two years there I made some of my best friends, really built up my confidence, and had a really great time as a student.”
