Level 3 Diploma in Business with Events and Tourism 

Next step: Store Management Apprenticeship with Aldi 

Ambition: Progress into management 

“I think it’s important to make the most of all learning opportunities and at Reaseheath the course leaders have motivated me to aim high. 

“I chose to study business at Reaseheath because the college has a good reputation and the wide range of courses attracts a range of students. I immediately felt at home because the campus and environment are so lovely. The staff are supportive and I’ve made many friends. 

“My course enabled me to learn so many skills and broaden my knowledge of management. A group visit to Manchester’s Christmas markets to look at product placement was really useful. 

“The whole experience certainly contributed to my success in securing my management apprenticeship with Aldi.”
