Working hard pays off.
Tom Davies, a West Yorkshire student, would have never said he was academic, but that never stopped him from working hard.
The BTEC scheme at Kirklees College suited him down to the ground. It allowed him to work at his own pace and research lots of things until he understood what was required of each topic.
On top of that he had worked his way right through the Scouting group at 4th Golcar Scouts, from cubs to Scouts to Explorers and now a Young Leader.
And then volunteering for things like Golcar Lily Day.
Well it had all paid off with an excellent apprenticeship with Nestlé. A great starting salary but more important is the investment they will be making in his further education. Working towards a degree qualification and working out of their various business units across the group (with accomation provided when at other parts of the country including Sheffield), the successful dozen candidates have a bright future ahead of them.
Good to see an employer making such an investment into their staff.
Have a look at what Kirklees College have had to say about it.
Well done Tom.
