Forth Valley College really helped Ivaylo Todorov to walk the walk in his career after he talked the talk on an English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) course.
The 32 year-old from Stirling studied the SCQF 4 ESOL course from September 2013 to June 2016 and the skills he learned at the Stirling Campus led to his employment at Town Break SCIO as a Day Club Assistant Co-ordinator, with Living Ambitions as a Support Worker and Pulse Community Healthcare also as a Support Worker and Falkirk & District Association for Mental Health, FDAMH as a befriending volunteer.
Ivaylo, said: “Forth Valley College was recommended by my Stirling Council ESOL tutors as the next step for me. Stirling Council’s ASPIRE Project paid for my first year at the College.
“I was really impressed with the facilities at the Stirling Campus. The classrooms are equipped with modern technology and the building is easily accessible. My lecturer made my classes fun and relevant to my life and future career plans. He supported me in my learning and made sure I was prepared for my assessments.
“The course has helped me develop my written and spoken communication skills. I am a more confident speaker and this has helped me change my career. Forth Valley College has also helped me to develop my CV and identify my skills.”
