Spreading their wings on BTEC Results Day

The vocational study route has created success for hundreds of Walsall College students.

Here some of them talk about how they excelled through their qualifications.

Daina Daukste

Studied - Level 3 Business and Accounting

Progression – Accounting and Finance degree at University of Birmingham

“I preferred a BTEC to A Levels because the course was more practical and less exam focused. I found exams incredibly stressful, so I wouldn’t do my best in them. My BTEC course suited me more. I achieved a D*D*D*. I’m interested in going into auditing.”

Zareena Shakeel

Studied – Level 3 Applied Science

Progression – Midwifery degree at Birmingham City University

“My BTEC helped me get on to my dream university course. The practical lab work, including experiments bought the subject to life.

“Studying at college makes you more independent because you’re out of the comfort zone you’ve built up through school. This makes settling into uni easier to handle.”

Amaan Nawaz

Studied – Level 3 Business and Accounting

Progression – Apprenticeship at KPMG

“There is a perception with some parents and part of the community that BTECs won’t get you into university or a good job. That’s not true. My course gave me more opportunities and a work placement. These helped me realise there’s more than one way to get into accounting and build up a career.”
