“I previously studied Level 2 and Level 3 Engineering at the College and am now studying the Level 4 HNC in Computer Aided Manufacture & Automation. I prefer a more hands-on approach to learning rather than academic education, so I always knew I wanted to study at the College because of the range of vocational courses on offer. I actually completed the furniture course before but decided it wasn’t the career choice for me, so I settled on engineering after some thought about the kind of work I might want to go into.
My favourite part of the course is learning about CAD software and producing different components. The tutors have been really supportive and great all the way through my time at the College and I would highly recommend the course to students interested in a career in engineering.
I am currently working for Polytec Car Styling in Bromyard alongside studying, which is easy to do as the course is only one day per week at the College. I hope to progress my career within the company and also plan to study the HND after completing the HNC.”
