Captain Captivated by College Course

A student was so impressed with the course he was doing and the responsive attitude of his tutors that he felt compelled to write to the principal and let him know!


Captain Rick Rawling, an Administration and Welfare Officer with the armed forces in Northern Ireland, wrote to George Trow, Principal and Chief Executive of Doncaster College, after completing a C&G Level 4 in Internally Assuring the Quality of Assessment course, via long distance learning with the College.


Rick said, "I just wanted the Principal to know how good the service I received was.


"From registration to accreditation…Superb! I have nothing but praise for the team at Doncaster College."


Rick, who is 45 and originally from Bircotes, Doncaster, joined the army in 1984. He is now preparing for when he eventually leaves the army and returns to civilian life, and is currently studying for a Masters Degree in HR Management through University Centre Doncaster.


Rick, who was the first student to complete the new C&G level 4, said, "I live and work in Northern Ireland and much of the correspondence was done via telephone, email and then attendance at College in Doncaster.


"It took me a little under 6 months to complete and was backed up with continuous advice, guidance and support.


"I would like to pay testimony to my tutor Christine Battley. She was outstanding, delivering this brand new programme, with flair and expertise."


"I would recommend this course and I would recommend you doing it with Doncaster College. You will not be disappointed."
