Derby College Role Model

Isaac Fowler

Isaac Fowler

Targeted lectures measure up for professional construction student

Teenager Isaac Fowler says Derby College is providing focus and freedom as he builds towards a career as a quantity surveyor.
Seventeen-year-old Isaac, from Belper, decided to take a BTEC Level 3 in Professional Construction when he realised life in the sixth form was not for him.
Now he is completing his course part-time after being taken on as an apprentice with builder GF Tomlinson following a work placement with the business.
Isaac is aiming to go on to take a Derby College foundation course, and then a degree with Derby University, while he gains more experience with GF Tomlinson.
His long-term dream is to qualify as a quantity surveyor and run his own business.
He said:

I'm enjoying college; you have more freedom than at school and the lessons are aimed at what I want to do for my future. The lecturers have both come from construction and they really know what they are talking about.
