Tom Downing

Tom completed his training at Shrewsbury College five years ago and was accepted onto an 18-month programme for trainee managers at a five-star hotel in Brighton. He’s still there and well established in catering management. “I am ambitious to succeed and one day want to be manager of a top hotel, so I am focused, but catering is very broad - it can lead into other things, the higher you go the more it coincides with business management.”more

Extended Diploma in Public Services L3

Josef Burgess

I chose Shrewsbury College because there was a good mix of practical and written work. The course didn’t involve exams as a form of assessment, which suited my learning style better than A Levels.

I didn’t really know what I wanted to do when I started the course, but it has an emphasis on all areas of the public sector. It allowed me to go to university and later become a retained Fire-fighter at Shrewsbury Fire Station, which will hopefully lead to full-time employment.

The outdoor stuff was great, we got to do a lot of stuff I wouldn’t usually had been able to do, like climbing, canoeing and potholing. The staff were really cool, I got on well with them and still drop by to say hello sometimes.more
