“I have studied at Newbury College for nearly two years now and I feel the college is working hard to ensure I obtain the qualifications I need and want. The course covers a wide range of engineering sectors, allowing me to explore different forms of engineering. The teaching staff all have different backgrounds, making the lessons far more interesting and diverse. I would like to progress onto level 4 at the new University Centre.”

Working with a diverse amount of people from different industries in one place has broadened my knowledge extensively. It is engaging to hear about what they do and play to each other’s strengths when completing group activities.

“I chose to study through Newbury College because the course offered at Kingsclere PA is really specialised. There are a good number of contact hours per week with industry professionals, so the training is relevant and of a high level. The training and skills I’ve learnt have given me the confidence to be audition ready for degree courses.”

I chose Newbury College because it provided me with the right course in the specific area of IT I wanted to pursue. As an apprentice, the on-the-job training allowed me to fully immerse myself in the career I wanted and a work environment which taught me the skills I still use today. Since leaving the College I have worked for various companies around the South East including design agencies, print and digital marketing companies, start-ups and charities. I am delighted to currently be using my skills to support the local community at Apple Print Creative and Design as a Web Developer.
