A Journey Begins

Moira's journey with Centre of Excellence is nothing short of inspiring. Like many of our learners, Moira came to us with a thirst for knowledge and a desire to enrich her life in meaningful ways. 

A former nurse now settling into retirement, Moira found herself with more time to pursue her passions. Her story reveals the endless possibilities that open up when you are committed to personal growth and lifelong learning.

The Power of Flexible Learning

Moira began her learning adventure with an open mind and a clear goal: to diversify her skills and pursue her passions. She began with the Anatomy and Physiology course, intrigued by the intricacies of the human body, and soon found herself exploring the creative world of Cake Baking and Decoration

But Moira didn't stop there. Her curiosity led her to delve into Advanced Nutrition for Weight Loss, Reflexology, CBT, and Sports Massage courses. With a keen appetite for learning, she also ventured into Drawing for Beginners, among many others she eagerly added to her list.

Embracing a Lifetime of Learning

What stands out in Moira's educational journey is her approach to learning. "I like the fact I can work at my pace, with no pressure to finish at any certain date," Moira shares. “I can feel relaxed about learning and this is extremely important to me as stress in learning is not something I need now after a life of stressful courses for my nursing life.” 

This flexibility, a cornerstone of the Centre of Excellence's philosophy, allowed her to weave her studies seamlessly into her life, ensuring that her learning experience was joyous rather than burdensome. 

The ability to access courses anytime provides a unique advantage, enabling learners like Moira to revisit materials and refresh their memory, developing a deeper understanding and retention of knowledge.

Discovering Joy in Diversity

Our diverse range of courses means that learning is not confined to career development alone. Moira's course choices illustrate how education can be a source of joy, a means to pursue varied interests, and a way to enhance your life in many ways. 

Her story highlights the confidence that comes from learning new skills, whether in baking elaborate cakes or in learning nail technician skills.

“I have enjoyed the confidence the courses have given me to persue varies hobbies, like the baking one, I have always baked cakes since I was a school girl but now feel I can take on more elaborate cake decoration and have orders for my cakes.” Moira shares. “I’m still learning and try to add more skills with each cake. I’m 66 and want to persue many things within my retirement and feel this way of learning will allow this to happen.”

Lessons Learned and Shared

Reflecting on her educational journey, Moira emphasises the importance of choosing courses that align with your goals, whether for career advancement or personal enrichment. "These courses empower me to take on many challenges," she asserts, underlining the confidence boost and professional and personal growth she has experienced. 

Her advice is invaluable: take your time, stay focused, and enjoy the learning process.

A Vision for the Future

Moira's narrative is a powerful reminder of the transformative potential of education, particularly how continuous learning can help people in their senior years.

“Throughout my nursing career I have seen many people who after retirement do nothing and subsequently suffer ill physical and mental health,” she recalls. “That’s not where I wish to be! I feel good and positive once I start a course and love receiving the positive feedback from the course tutors. This helps me both professionally and personally as they increase my confidence.”

 It's not just about acquiring knowledge; it's about opening doors to new possibilities, pursuing passions, and enhancing your quality of life. Moira’s journey exemplifies Centre of Excellence's mission to empower and transform lives, one course at a time.
