Achieved: HNC in Construction and the Built Environment
Where next: Continuing in his career as a Development Support Technician at Lancashire County Council while studying for a BEng (Hons) in Civil Engineering at the University of Central Lancashire
“Coming back into academic learning was quite a daunting prospect when I started in my mid-30s, especially having no qualifications from school. I had achieved around 15 construction qualifications over the years, but there was nothing academic or anything that would support a career on the professional side of the sector.
“The teaching at the University Centre has been fantastic, and I’ve felt comfortable and at home in the classroom. My progress over the last year would not be possible without the quality of teaching that I have received and the content in the course which has developed my knowledge.
“Committing to enrol onto the course and demonstrating application to achieve a qualification also helped me to secure my current role at Lancashire County Council. My next aim is to undertake a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Civil Engineering and work towards becoming a Charted Civil Engineer in the next five years.”
