Jamie Quinn (22) from Nottingham completed a maths functional skills course with CT Skills in July 2017.
After leaving school with what he describes as "very disappointing" GCSE grades - particularly in English and maths - Jamie became convinced that his grades defined him and his expectations in life. He followed his friends to college and signed onto courses he wasn't interested in. He says that was a major mistake.
