The winner of the College’s prospectus survey competition received her prize today.
Amy Milne, a current Fife College student studying NC Child, Health and Social Care as well as Intermediate Counselling Skills, was thrilled to be given the prize of a brand new Kindle Fire and £25 Amazon voucher after being randomly selected as winner form those who completed the survey on the 2016-17 Fife College prospectus.
The survey, which asked a range of questions relating to the prospectus, is an invaluable source of information and helps to ensure that the College continues to produce a publication that meets the needs of our prospective students.
Amy, 16 from Inverkeithing, said: “When I found out that I had won the prospectus survey competition, I couldn’t believe it. I was in class when I found out and I just kept saying that it couldn’t be real because I never win anything!
“I don’t think it’s really sunk in for me yet, even though I now have the prize in my hands, but I’m absolutely delighted! I think that when I get the Kindle home and start using it it’ll sink in.
“I’m really happy that the prize is a Kindle Fire. I have scotopic sensitivity, which means that I have difficulty reading, and I use colour overlays to help me just now so I’m hoping that the Kindle will help with this and I’m planning to get books on it and use it in any way I can to help with my studies. The voucher will also go a way to help that.
“I actually asked for a Kindle as a Christmas present this year, but I suppose it’ll be a cheaper Christmas for my family now I have one a bit early!
“I thought that the prospectus was really easy to understand and follow this year – I found it really straight forward to find the course I was looking for and get all the information I needed. I liked the style and layout of the prospectus.
“This is my second year at college. Last year I did Introduction to Counselling Skills. This year, I’ve progressed onto Intermediate Counselling Skills, which is part-time, and I’m also doing NC Child, Health and Social Care full-time.
“It’s really challenging and a lot of work – I work two jobs too – but I’m getting into a good routine and a rhythm now and finding my feet in the new courses. What makes it easier is that I’m enjoying the courses again this year and I’m learning a lot.
“I’m not sure what I’m going to do next year, I’m thinking about social services; it’s the next step after NC Child, Health and Social Care and I’ve got an interest in social services in particular. Whatever I choose though, I’ll definitely continue my education at the College and keep learning.”
