5 Call us today to find out more about Dorton College Thanks to dorton s support & working hard for MY qualifications I ve got the job I really wanted. Naomi, Former Dorton College student MEET 22 YEAR OLD NAOMI, FORMER DORTON COLLEGE STUDENT Naomi came to Dorton College after mainstream primary and secondary education to study for her A-levels. I was excited about the opportunity to move away from my childhood home and gain that all important independence and freedom, whilst studying. The college gave me a social life outside of college. I was able to make friends locally; get on a train and go to different places. I had independence which helped me feel part of the sighted world. Naomi went on to University and has recently got her dream job as an Intervenor for children with multi-sensory impairments. Thanks to the support I received at Dorton and working hard for my qualifications I ve got the job I really wanted.
