"I came to Middlesbrough College back in 1986 when it was known as Longlands, where I enrolled onto the Computer Studies course.
Thanks to the business element, we covered a mix of everything from computers and programming, to business and finance, meaning it gave us a good amount of knowledge for when it came to the next step.
The teachers were so helpful and really gave us the platform to go on to do great things - I still keep up-to-date with them now via Twitter!
Following my two year course, I then went on to work at ICI installing computers, before moving to Cleveland County Council as an IT Training Manager.
Fast forwards several years and I now own my own business, Walker Business Transformation Ltd and spend my days as a consultant!
I am still so grateful for my time at Middlesbrough College and the knowledge, experience and confidence it gave me when it came to my career - I'd definitely recommend studying here, the opportunities you can gain are fantastic!"
