Level 3 Diploma in Business
“I first decided to come to Chesterfield College because it was the only college in the area that allowed me to study English and maths alongside a business course. I’ve always had a thing for business so I wanted to pursue it at a higher level. At college we have great work experience opportunities; I’ve been able to go on work placement at Citizens Advice which has been really useful for my long term career goal of working in law. We also have guest speakers who come in to college to speak to us about their business, which has been great because we’ve been able to get an insight into how a real business operates and also get tips for when we go into business ourselves. I have found it difficult at times juggling English and maths while also studying a business course but my tutors have been incredibly supportive of me and helped with my work load. I’ve really enjoyed the environment at college; the equipment here is great which just makes learning so much easier. To anyone thinking about studying at college, I would say to give it a shot; there are so many opportunities and great people here, you won’t regret it. I’m now really excited to go to the University of Bedfordshire to study law this September.”
