We are proudly supporting Love Our Colleges Week 2019 and highlighting the impact Wirral Met has on students’ lives. With 165 years of heritage and history in supporting education and training, from basic skills to Degree and post-graduate education, there are many success stories to share!

One such example is student Sean Lavery. Sean started his studies at Wirral Met in 2013 and has since completed a number of counselling qualifications, including his level 4 counselling diploma in 2017. Sean was then offered a job at Wirral Met as a counselling lecturer and describes the role as a “complete dream”.

Sean said: “My learning experience has been amazing at Wirral Met. I was blown away by the support I received from the college. Coupled with the fact I can now use this awareness alongside my training to both help and educate people is a complete dream.

Other alumni include renowned artist Christian Furr, who currently has a Retrospective Exhibition at the Williamson Art Gallery and Museum and Chef Patron of The Art School, Paul Askew.
