The tutors have been a great support and work closely with local employers. I managed to secure an apprenticeship with AMC Engineering as a result of my experience on the course. Jake Anderson, Engineering Student

I was interested in studying gamekeeping as I’ve always lived in a remote area and gamekeeping runs in my family - my granddad was a gamekeeper too. I study at the college on a block-release basis which I like as I can study more easily there than I would had I been at home. On my estate placement I only work with deer, so coming to college and learning the theory about all the birds, pheasants and partridges is a fantastic opportunity which will come in handy for me in the future if I cross over to that side of it. As well as theory work, we also develop core skills for employability and I’ve learnt a lot about communication skills, especially for interviews. On completion of my studies I hope to gain a full-time job in the gamekeeping industry. Sophie Clark, HNC Gamekeeping with Wildlife Management Student
