Linta is currently studying her Level 3 Extended Diploma in Childcare and has recently completed her BSL Level 3 in Sign Language. She is currently exploring her options with Universities for the academic year 15/16.
Linta came to Newcastle College straight from school in September 2011 and was shy to begin with. She soon came out of her shell and her confidence has grown throughout her time at the College. Linta is a very capable student and her English and Maths skills have greatly improved.
All of Lintas’ work has been of a very high standard which she has always finished ahead of time, if anything the work has been too easy for her. She has always been a great help to all of her classmates and often spends time explaining things to them. Linta is a Peer Mentor to fellow Deaf Students and achieved ASDAN accreditation in mentoring.
Teaching and support staff have found Linta a pleasure to work with and look forward to continuing to work with her. To see her blossom and mature has been a privilege and knowing Linta has a great desire to achieve and do her utmost best in everything is a breath of fresh air.
Her ultimate goal is to go on to work with Deaf children where I feel she will be a great role model. Apart from passing her Child Care course Level 2, Linta also passed BSL Level 1 and BSL Level 2.
