“I joined the Foundation course with very little belief in my potential and can honestly say I enrolled on the course with the expectation I would use the experience as a ‘gap year’ of sorts. After just one term I vastly improved and with the incredible support and teaching from the staff, I went on to the three year course with DaDA funding. After an amazing four years at Bodywork Company, I am thankful to say I signed my first professional contract shortly after leaving and hope there are many more to come!”
