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.

The HNC has provided me with a thorough understanding of business fundamentals, which I have been able to translate into my working life as a Marketing Executive. Having started in this career less than two years ago as an entry level Communications Coordinator, I have already received a promotion and have undertaken increased levels of responsibility.
