How did you find the move from school to College?
Once you get over the first few days it’s great. I much prefer the more grown-up environment at College, compared to school. The hardest thing was getting used to calling teachers by their first names!
What have you enjoyed/are you enjoying most about your courses?
I like BTEC Business because you get to study things that will help you in your working life. I’ve enjoyed learning about Finance and the recruitment process, where you get to prepare yourself for an interview and learn to see things from the employer’s perspective.
How have you found the support at College?
The Learning Support has been excellent. I have poor hand-writing and can struggle to stay focused, but to help me, I’ve been able to use a laptop for my exams and also have extra breaks during lessons and exams.
What are your plans for the future?
I’ m going to the University of Sussex to study Accounting and Finance and plan to pursue a career in that area.
