HE & FE Open Day - Thursday 13 October 2022
College is very different from school in that there is more independence and I feel that it helps people get ready for the real world. The facilities like The Hex are also features which helped make my decision to come to college.
What have you done since leaving Lancaster & Morecambe College?
I have since joined the local accounting firm Scott and Wilkinson in Lancaster on a full time basis as a trainee accountant. The firm gave me the opportunity to have a week of work experience whilst in the second year of my college course. I am soon going to start my accounting exams in order to get the qualifications that I need to become an accountant.
What is your favourite thing about your job?
My favourite thing about my job is that it is a new challenge and I am always learning new things. It is also exciting to get into the real world of work and to see how things are done. As well as this the people are very welcoming and my colleagues have made my start to work very enjoyable.
