I've always been interested in engineering and took the decision to study at Gloucestershire College to gain additional qualifications, alongside my job as a Service Engineer. My lecturers were superb; always willing to help and very supportive to those who want to learn. The equipment is perfect too. During my first year I was tasked to design an instrument for the lower level students to use for testing, and in the second year, we worked as a collective to design a 3D printer for a parts supply unit. My next steps will be to continue my studies and go on to study a BEng(Hons) in Electronic Engineering at UWE, with a view to becoming a Design Engineer in the future.

Thanks to the contacts of my lecturer, I gained work experience as a production assistant alongside my studies, which he allowed me the flexibility to do. The College has great facilities for the course; lots of professional film equipment and industry-standard cameras. I am now considering working freelance, using the contacts acquired through my college work experience, and I would like to move to London to progress my career in film.
