The work experience opportunities at BTC have been really beneficial. I started by helping out at Cedar Falls Health Farm & Spa, and by the end of the week, I was giving complementary treatments. Now I’ve completed my Level 2 and am starting to study my Level 3, I work there part-time which is great for my coursework.
