Business Level 3 Extended Diploma

I would recommend South Essex College because I feel it is a judgement-free zone and you can express yourself through the freedom they give you. I enjoy the college environment and the accessibility to resources.

Business & Logistics student of the year, Chloe Wade, has not only used her time at South Essex College to boost her skills, but help others too.

The 17-year-old, from Stanford-le-Hope, helped raise more than £1,600 for Great Ormond Street Hospital at a charity event she organised alongside fellow classmates. She was also crowned joint winner of the college’s ‘Who Wants to be an Entrepreneur’ competition, where she presented her idea for a sustainable, 100% biodegradable wheat straw phone case.

She was nominated by her tutors for the award for ‘really making the most of every opportunity presented to her this year.’

Her nomination citation read: “She is excelling in all aspects of her study programme and is reliable, committed and a pure delight to have in the class.  She is supportive of her peers and is intrinsically motivated to improve her attainment and employability to give herself the best opportunity of being successful in her future career.”

Chloe said she was delighted to win the award.

She said: “I am very grateful for all of the advice and help that my tutors have given me. I am happy with the work I produce and always make sure everything is up to a high standard.

“I would recommend South Essex College because I feel it is a judgement-free zone and you can express yourself through the freedom they give you. I enjoy the college environment and the accessibility to resources.”

Chloe is now progressing on to an apprenticeship in digital marketing for an events and festival company and continues to pursue her dream of becoming an entrepreneur and work in digital marketing.
