This student also studied the BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma in Public Services which is no longer available at Reigate College.

What made you choose BTEC courses?

I like the practical nature of the courses and the emphasis on coursework meant that I could work steadily all year, rather than having the pressure of performing in exams. 

How did you find the move from school to College?

I love change and so I found the experience exhilarating and very smooth. It was made easy by the teachers who were great – calling them by their first names instead of Miss or Sir took a bit of getting used to though! 

How have you been involved in College life?

There are so many sports and activities on offer at College. I took the Sports Leaders Award, which really developed my passion for coaching. I’m also goalkeeper and captain for one of the College football teams and I’ve really enjoyed performing in the College’s musical shows and concerts. 

What are your plans the future?

I’m hoping to study Sport and PE at university with a view to going into teaching or joining the Armed Forces.
