Lockdown Student Stories: Emily | A Level Sociology
Discover why Emily decided to pursue her goals and enhance her career by studying her A Level Sociology qualification online with us.
I recently left a job where I worked with autistic people and I was due to start a new job working with people with mental health problems, but lockdown brought that to a temporary stand-still.
With the extra time I decided to study with ICS Learn and gain my A Levels is because I did not get the opportunity to do them when I was younger.
When I was sixteen, I suffered with mental health problems and could not complete college. Since then I have been in and out of hospital as well as care homes, so I haven’t really been in a place to be able to study.
I’m still currently living in supported living, but I have been stable for around two years and decided that now was the right time to gain my qualifications.
I have always wanted to achieve A Levels as all of my friends managed to go to college then go on to university and I have always felt left behind.
I choose to study A Level Sociology because I am very interested in how society works and how individuals act in society. As well as this, sociology would be a helpful qualification for my future.
It has been very good studying under lockdown as it has kept me busy during a time when I can’t do the things I would normally do. It has also kept my mind busy which is particularly important as times like this are hard for me.
My tutor has been great, I have found him to be really supportive and excellent at giving me feedback to help with my studies.
In the future, I plan to work in supported living for people with mental health problems and maybe even become a mental health nurse.
I would definitely recommend studying with ICS Learn as they have a great learning platform, are quick to respond to any questions, and are very reasonably priced.
All in all, I am thoroughly enjoying my studies.
