Brock really helped me to focus my studies in areas that would help me achieve my long term career goal of becoming an accountant. My Maths teacher in particular really supported me during my time at Brock and I am so happy that my hard work has paid off.

Studied:

A levels Maths A, Business A, Accounting A

More from Katie...

I chose to study at Brock because my school didn’t offer as wide a range of subjects as the College. I also wanted the opportunity to take more responsibility for my learning, which is not something I believe I would have had if I’d continued to my school’s sixth form.

Brock really helped me to focus my studies in areas that would help me achieve my long term career goal of becoming an accountant. My Maths teacher in particular really supported me during my time at Brock and I am so happy that my hard work has paid off.

During my studies I completed work experience at accountancy firms Ernst and Young and KPMG. These work placements really helped me grow in confidence and gave me a better understanding the role I am hoping to fulfill.

The College also has a wide range of Enrichment opportunities. I made good use of these by joining a yoga class, which helped to relax me after studying.

The best part of being at Brock has been the fact that I have been treated like an adult and been trusted to take responsibility for my own success. If I hadn’t joined the College, then I would not have discovered my interest in accountancy or have been aware of the range of opportunities studying this subject could provide.

I am delighted with my results and so thankful to my teachers for helping me believe in my abilities.
