“I enjoyed studying Business at GCSE’s compared to all the other subjects I took, and wanted to pursue a future in Business as it is something I have always been interested in. The course that was being offered really interested me as it looked into parts of Business in different units throughout the year, I also liked the fact there were no exams involved. At College they also offer work experience to give you the chance to experience the particular area you would like to explore a future in. The Business course also goes on a trip to London, when I went we visited the VIP personal shopper of Selfridges as well as watched a West End show. I would like to study Marketing at University when I have completed College, or take up an apprenticeship with BAE Systems that is offered through College.”
