How long have you worked at Plumpton College?
Since August 2019
Bit about you!
I trained at Plumpton while being an apprentice at a local authority and private Golf Clubs. I studied my Level 1 & 2 at the Plumpton campus at Stanmer, and my Level 3 & 4 at Plumpton College Lewes campus.
Why choose an apprenticeship?
I believe any learning that combines the practical element in the workplace, supported with theory-based knowledge at College is a perfect combination for the student and employer. Also, at College it’s great to meet other people from your respective industry giving you greater insight, understanding and support.
What’s your greatest industry-based achievement?
To have been a Course Manager at one of the top developments in Europe, and project manage the construction of two Golf Courses in Surry in the 1990’s, that are still successful today.
