We will support you towards whichever future you choose

Whatever your destination Oakes helps you find a route to get there.

For me, I had great lessons which shaped my knowledge to get me ready for working in nursing. However, being part of the student council. the electives, work experience and taking part in various events and charity fundraisers, really built my confidence and got me ready for the next step. I’ve had a great two years at Oakes and feel ready to get into working in healthcare.
