What do I do next?
Level 3 Extended Diploma in Business
Previous school: Ercall Wood School
I originally took this course as an all-rounder as I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do after college, however I have really enjoyed the course and am looking at a career in business more seriously now. I am considering going onto the HND course to further my knowledge. Doing the HND at SCG will mean I know other students and have a rapport with the teachers, will not have far to travel and it will cost me a lot less than at university.
Level 2 Diploma in Business
Previous School: Church Stretton School
I liked the small business planning part of the course most of all. We were taught the basics of how to start your own business up and the financial planning that goes into that, so the course has given me ideas about how I could organise my own business and move forward in the right direction. My mum runs her own small catering business and I want to start a similar business of my own when I finish college.
A Level Business (Economics, Statistics)
Previous school: Thomas Adams School
The teachers are engaging at SCG and I really enjoy the lessons – they are well taught. I have enjoyed learning about finance and also how Twitter can be used in national and international business. Over the Summer I successfully gained an Internship with the JP Morgan Think Ahead Program.
Level 3 Extended Diploma in Business
Previous School: Lakelands Academy
I like that the course is assignment based, which suits my skills a lot more than doing exams. There are also a lot of practical elements to the course which I really enjoyed, like doing presentations, creating displays and taking part in class debates. The course has given me a good understanding of how businesses work, and it’s been my steppingstone into employment. I’ve got an apprenticeship in a recruitment business in Shrewsbury set up for after I leave college.
Business Apprentice at Kingsland Financial
I tried the Business Administration Apprenticeship without a lot of work experience or relevant qualifications and very little confidence. My employer gave me a safe and stable environment to learn new and different skills and liaised with the college which tailored the qualification modules to suit my job role. It was an excellent route for me because it gave me the opportunity to learn new skills I had never imagined I would be good at.
