Brock student receives Amazing People Awards nomination
Posted on: 30th June 2014
Business Student Dansan Wickneswaran attended the Solent Education Business Partnership Amazing People Awards at the Novotel Southampton last week, where he was nominated for an award within the ‘Making the Most of Work Experience’ category. There were 13 award categories for students and local businesses.
The awards celebrate young people’s preparation for adult life and work, and Dansan was recognised for his performance on work placement in the Business Development Department at the College.
A video clip of Dansan speaking about his experience was shown at the awards ceremony; he said: “Undertaking my work placement in the Business Development Office opened my eyes to the working world and made me think about how I could develop my career. Following my placement I worked even harder on my coursework to achieve higher grades and was accepted onto a Degree in Retail Management course at Bournemouth University.”
