Student Profile

Previous course: Level 3 Extended Diploma in Business 2015

“Reaseheath gave me the opportunities I needed to become a future leader through interactive and hands-on activities such as Young Enterprise and Career Development. The atmosphere and community feel helped me to gain confidence and I have utilised this to make ambitious education and career jumps. I was able to support other students, and this helped me to progress into full leadership and project management roles at university.

“I graduated with a BA (Hons) and a Level 7 Chartered Management Institution (CMI) degree and I did a year’s work experience in a management role. Since graduating, I’ve been approached by businesses such as Dyson, Rolls-Royce, IBM and Virgin about graduate jobs.

“Reaseheath gave me the confidence and the skill set to pursue these opportunities and I am grateful to the staff who believed in us during our studies.”
