A Level student Barrett Harris


Barrett Harris did his A Levels at school. However, after a year out gave him a passion for the financial industry he decided to return to college to take the appropriate A Levels for a career in investment banking.

The 21-year-old said: “During my gap year I became really interested in stocks and shares, so decided to come to college to study for A2 Levels in Business, Economics and Law and AS Maths so I could pursue a career in the area.

“The first time I did my A Levels I was in sixth form at a school so it has been interesting to experience how different it is in a college. Here you get more freedom and are treated more like an adult. I don’t feel patronised and can have conversations with my tutors as an equal.

“My tutors are great and give a lot of extra help. They have run a lot of revision sessions to make sure we all do well and I am full of praise for them. They will help you out with anything – at one point I found myself homeless and they directed me to the appropriate support.”

Barrett is moving on to study Economics and Law at Lancaster University.
