Student Profile
Felix Heading

Ambition: Combine engineer

School: Emanuel School, Wandsworth

Age: 26

Although he’s a Londoner, Felix has always felt drawn to the countryside so he approached his local CLASS dealership, A T Oliver and Sons, for advice.

The company recommended studying at Reaseheath so he enrolled on our Level 2 Diploma in Agricultural Engineering as an introduction to agricultural engineering and has progressed onto our Level 3 Diploma.

A former retail service support supervisor, Felix is gaining industry experience by working for Olivers as part of his course and during college holidays, and is looking forward to a successful career as a qualified engineer.

Felix says: “Studying at Reaseheath has opened up a lot of opportunities for me.”
