Business Level 3 - Lydia
Former School(s): Carrington School (The Warwick School)
Lydia left ESC with a Business Level 3 qualification and went on to study Marketing at Aston University after being awarded a scholarship based on her College grades.
She graduated with a 2:1 degree and now works as a Fleet Administrator at Veolia ES UK, an international operator in the environmental waste management sector.
"The most enjoyable part of my role is that no two days are ever the same. I love the fact that I'm always learning and developing - values I developed at East Surrey College which have helped me to ensure that I remain on the pathway of continuous development."
Thinking back to her time at ESC, Lydia's favourite elements of her Business course included working alongside other students on group projects, and studying Marketing.
Her desire to study this area of business at University and beyond came about after a work-based project set by her tutor, which involved developing and marketing a new Ben & Jerry's ice cream product!
"The course I took at ESC helped me to develop many skills that have benefited me during my journey through University and into a Business environment - in particular working in teams and developing advanced speaking, listening and writing skills".
Lydia has very positive memories of ESC where she made lots of friends and memories as well as building the skills and confidence she puts to use every day in her career.
"The College and staff really have your best interests at heart - the quality of support and knowledge imparted by the tutors is amazing, and really allows you to shine and progress in your academic and professional life."
