"When preparing for the next step post-school I looked at several colleges in the area to find out about the opportunities available.
"Middlesbrough College really stood out thanks to the facilities and level of teaching on campus.
"The Application and Web Development course was fantastic. It covered such a wide range of topics and gave a lot of hands on experience.
"After completing the course, I felt like I was really clued up on the industry which was great for my CV. I then decided to pursue another passion of mine, and became a digital marketing apprentice.
"Even though the subject area wasn't directly linked to my BTEC course, I was still able to take what I learnt and implement it into my apprenticeship which really helped.
"I'd highly recommend coming to the College. The tutors are amazing and so intelligent - it was great to learn from decent people!
"You have everything you need under one roof and the location is ideal. Overall my time here was great.
"Following this, I then gained experience in a couple of companies in the area where I put what I had learnt from my BTEC and apprenticeship into practice.
"I then noticed a gap in the market for a marketing company that offered support surrounding social media - CB Social was then born in October 2019!
"Our agency is now working with and supporting companies across the globe. It's really exciting to say I run my own business.
"The experience has been such a good learning curve. I am so grateful for everything I learnt at Middlesbrough College; the broad curriculum 100% helped me to get where I am today!"
I'd highly recommend coming to the College. The tutors are amazing and so intelligent - it was great to learn from decent people!
