HND in Advanced Practice

Kelly Higgott is a mature student at Heart Of Worcestershire College studying for an HND Advanced Practice in work with Children and Families. She is single mum and cares for her two children who both have life limiting conditions and severe disability.

Kelly started studying four years ago on a Level 2 childcare programme and is now completing her Level 5 qualification. She has become an excellent role model to all students in the group who are inspired by her dedication and commitment to learning.

Doing BTEC has really opened my mind to the opportunity of taking [the studies] quite far as a career. It's been great to do.

In 2017, Kelly has been awarded the BTEC Higher National Student of the Year award. Find out the many ways in which she continuously inspires others in the award video:

Kelly is currently revising for a top-up the qualification to enable her to achieve a full degree.
