Professional Services Academy Students

Get an insight into life at the Professional Services Academy?

There’s no better way to find out what’s great about studying professional services with us than from the students themselves. Here are just a handful of our recent success stories …

Anisha - Level 3 Business Studies

“I used to be the kind of student that was easily distracted.  I wouldn’t concentrate and took my time doing things.  College changed me.  Making new friends, having great teachers and being made 100% responsible for the way I studied changed me. I’m now focused, make decisions quickly and have the confidence to do anything.

“The moment you realise you make your own success and that no-one can do it all for you is when your career gets going.

“My Apprenticeship is a good opportunity for me.  It will open doors and is a route towards me working in a banking environment.”

Progression- Apprentice for Business and Professional Career College

 

Sania - Level 3 Business Studies

“Having friends, teachers and others in college supporting me played a big part in how well I developed and succeeded as a student.  I’ve had a good insight into the law sector, including work experience at Freeths Solicitors.  The guest lectures in college also supported my career aspirations.

“I’ve found talks from people in business really useful.  When I got more interested in law, I got advice from a lecturer and had two days’ work experience with a solicitors firm.  I used to think I couldn’t achieve.  Now I’ve done presentations, got involved in class discussions and fundraising projects.

“I’ve got great college memories to take with me.”

Progression- Criminology Degree at the University of Birmingham

Mohammed – Level 3 Business Studies
