I am Ben Thompson and I am currently studying Digital, Design and Production at Level 3 through a T-Level programme with Cosmic Key Games. Previously, I went to Laurence Jackson school, and have a keen interest in IT and Business, I hope to peruse these as a career in the future as hopefully a Business Analyst.
My time studying at Middlesbrough College has been extremely informative so far and I enjoy the fact the course is broad-natured, so I can learn about multiple different areas. I chose to study at the college because of great reviews from my friends, plus I was really interested in the course offered.
Since starting at Middlesbrough College, I have used the café and gym facilities regularly, which are both well equipped and hygienic which is great.
A huge benefit of being on a T-Level programme is that I am able to work on real-life tasks that are seen by other people and are not just set up to learn from. Plus, the working environment great and helps me gain industry experience for future employment.
Web development, finance, accountancy, industry standards, social communication and meetings, game development, social media marketing and analysis, business, legal and administration are just to name a few of the key areas I have developed my skills in since starting my placement at Cosmic Key Games.
I have really been able to apply my new web development and analysis skills to my college course, which helps set me up for future success through the work experience I have gained.
In the future, I hope to go onto either a Higher Apprenticeship or University to take my education further in hopes to gain a job as a Business Analyst later in life.
