“I’ve really loved studying ICT at West Thames. I began at Entry Level and worked my way right up to Level 3. The skills I learned have been invaluable, especially networking and programming. I represented the college at the WorldSkills UK competition this year and came second in the regional finals. After university, it’s my ambition to work in the IT division for a top company.”
