This is the podcast where we hear inspirational stories about people who are gaining qualifications and learning new skills later in life. Host Nia Parry will be asking what drove her guests to change their story and what advice they have for you if you want to change your story too.



Episode 7: Finding your path into Higher Education

Achieving higher level qualifications can open doors to better careers, higher earnings or more life choices. Nia speaks to three women who didn’t go to university from school. Each has taken a different route to pursue a university education – Emma, Brittany and Louise have each faced their own challenges, they talk about tackling imposter syndrome, recognising the value of the life experience they bring to their studies and their ambitions for the future. Nia is joined by Ceri Nicolle from First Campus. She talks about the student support available and different initiatives in place to ensure that more adults get their chance to progress to university.
