Student Stories

Millie Keddie

“I’ve always enjoyed being hands-on and practical. Mechanical engineering is not all theory based; there is lots of opportunity to solve problems by making things, and perfecting them in your own way. There’s a stereotype that engineering is a man’s job. I love the industry, I don’t care about the stereotype. It’s not a man’s job and it doesn’t matter what gender you are, you can do anything if your heart is in it."

Tom Chapman

"I’m studying at GC because my employer, Unilever, thought it would be a good course for me to attend to expand my knowledge. As a maintenance engineer, the HNC course allows me to expand my knowledge and help progression in my career. The equipment is decent and mimics the workplace, so skills can easily translate. The electrical lecturers are good too, and I’ve received great support."

"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."
