“Going to university wasn’t something I planned to do,” said 25-year-old Jordan Dearn, “but the qualification I gained at college was a great pathway into the IT industry and allowed me entry to the University of Wolverhampton.”
He added: “At college I was treated like an adult and the content of the course helped me understand the modules that I would study at university. In my second year the assignments, presentations and reports I had to produce prepared me for academic study and what would be expected of me in my degree.
“It was exciting going to university as it meant I was able to study IT in greater depth and I’ve shown that A Levels aren’t the only route to getting there.”
Jordan currently works as a PVT tester for digital technology company Capgemini and plansto pursue a career in business analysis.
