Previous Dearne Valley College students have gone on to do some amazing things! Including former Land-based Management student, Georgina Yates.
Georgina said: “My time at Dearne Valley College was one of surprise, I joined as a mature student and really didn’t know what to expect as all I could think about was my experience at school which, let’s say wasn’t the best. College totally took me by surprise, it was an experience I will take with me forever.”
She continued – “My career path has taken a great direction for me. I am currently a Garden Supervisor for English Heritage based at Brodsworth Hall in Doncaster, arguably one of the best gardens in the country. I am also a trainee judge for the RHS in Bloom competition and looking forward to what is next for me”.
