Business Studies, Economics, Mathematics

Hereford Sixth Form College not only helps you to meet your potential, it constantly looks to better its students and guide them to exceed expectations.

Former school: Wigmore High School

Studied: A Level Business Studies, Economics, Mathematics

Now on a higher apprenticeship scheme, studying for ACA qualifications.

The relationships that students are able to build with tutors really sets the College apart from others.

Today I am working towards my dream of obtaining the Associate Chartered Accountant (ACA) qualification. Without the aid and support from tutors I do not believe I would be telling the same story. I was encouraged to consider alternative routes. I was treated as an individual when discussing my personal goals and I was given priceless advice when applying for work experience and with my job application for BDO, a leading accountancy and business advisory firm.

My advice to students is to consider all career paths - be it studying at university, joining an apprenticeship scheme or getting a job. Work experience is key. Look to build your CV in any way that you can in order to make you stand out from the other candidates.
