Learner, Mohammed Z - 'When I first enrolled at Waltham Forest College, I was nervous and timid. Now that I've grown more self-assured, I can talk to other students during lunch and break times. My maths and English knowledge have improved, and I now receive weekly VI support from a specialist because of my visual impairment. I am pleased to be moving onto a mainstream course for the upcoming academic year.'
