Eighteen year old Cymoedd learner, Millie Easley left school with a focus on pursuing a career in the Business industry. However, at 16 years she was unsure of the specific route that she wanted to follow within the industry.
Millie attended an Open day at Coleg y Cymoedd and has never looked back. Living in Caerphilly, the Nantgarw campus was easy to access and she was excited to experience the atmosphere of studying at the college.
She enrolled on the Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in Business which provided an in-depth understanding of the operations and structures of businesses. Throughout the course Millie enjoyed learning about areas such as Exploring Business, Principles of Management and Work Experience in Business.
On completion of the course Millie achieved excellent grades and was equipped with the skills, to enable her to pursue her chosen career route within the Health & Safety industry. She enrolled on the NEBOSH qualification; an advanced Health & Safety course that will put her in a strong position to apply for and secure employment within the sector.
Speaking about her learning journey Millie said â€œDeciding to go to college was the best decision I have made, I now have many wonderful friends, fantastic memories and an honourable qualification. The course has shown me a variety of areas within the business industry that I would not have considered as a career, before starting the course.
Throughout my time at the college I have definitely become a more confident and independent person.Â I would highly recommend the course and the college, itâ€™s a great place to study â€“ the staff are so helpful.
Iâ€™m looking forward to pursuing a career in the Health & Safety industry and I cannot thank the staff at Coleg y Cymoedd for their encouragement and support throughout the course.â€
