Why did you choose Reigate College?

I was keen to move with my friendship group, but the College also offered the courses I was looking for, to support my career plans.

How and why did you decide which subjects to study?

From a young age I’ve wanted to join the Royal Marines and so the BTEC in Public Services was an obvious choice for me, and complemented by Sport.

What have you enjoyed most about your courses?

I enjoy Public Services because I’ve been able to find out more about the Marines and learn about other services too. Being a fitness-driven person, it’s been good learning about all the different business areas that make up the Sports Industry. It’s got me thinking about possible things I could do after the Marines.

I found the courses quite daunting at the beginning, but with good help and support I’ve been able to go on to achieve some grades I’m proud of.

What are your plans for the future?

I’m planning on becoming a Royal Marine for the camaraderie, the daily challenges and the opportunities that the service is likely to provide.
