Graeme Turner

A natural career choice

For Graeme Turner, Derby College provided the ideal preparation for his job as a ranger at Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre.
 
The wide-ranging content of the BTEC National Diploma in Countryside Management stood him in good stead for a role where every day is different and involves duties from showing visitors around and running events to looking after livestock and liaising with contractors. Graeme praises the “friendly and approachable” lecturers and the chance to bounce ideas off his fellow learners, whose ages ranged from 16 to 38.
 
He went on to gain a degree in Travel and Tourism with Countryside Management but says he would not have secured his current role without the experience he gained at College.

Derby College gave me the qualifications to pursue a career as a ranger and ultimately secure a degree which led to further career advancement. The course helped me learn how to handle responsibility, share my ideas and work well with others.
