simran jawanda"I wanted more independence, so when I left school after my GCSEs, I initially began a Level 3 IT course, but after a while I realised it wasn’t the course for me. My teachers were very supportive and helped me decide on Level 3 Business which I started after passing the first year of IT.

"I went on to study a degree in accounting and finance at the University of Leicester and then completed a master’s degree in finance and can honestly say my time at Northampton College gave me a head start. It gave me a foundation and gave me an advantage over my peers who, unlike me, had no knowledge of law and accounting – subjects I had covered on my course.

"The teachers on my course are some of the best I’ve had – they are genuinely keen to help you to understand fully what they are teaching you. They are committed to helping you succeed at the same time as giving you a push to be independent. Others I know who went onto Sixth Form did not get this level of support.

"I now work as a junior finance partner at the Northampton base of Mitie, an intelligence-led security business, managing the costs of the whole division and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Northampton College to anyone passionate about their future."
