Public Services course leads to career

Coming to Derby College changed my life and gave me the confidence to follow my dreams and key work ethics such as punctuality and respect.


"I grew up very small and skinny and finished school with low confidence.
"I then enrolled in Public Services with a dream of being a soldier.


"Slowly but surely I gained in confidence and the turning point was when we went to Lympstone to participate in a 'Look at Life' course with the Royal Marines.


"A Corporal there and my lecturer Jon Agyeman made me feel ten feet tall and I left there feeling that I could chop down a mountain with my bare hands.


"I joined 7 Para RHA, part of 16 air assault brigade – serving a frontline tour of Afghanistan as a signaller as part of the Brigade Reconnaissance force. I was also deployed on security at the London 2012 Olympics.


"After leaving the Army, I re-trained in security and am now a Security Manager based at Highcross shopping centre in Leicester and in charge of a large operational team. I also work on crisis management and anti-terrorism.


"I love working in security as it is very similar to Army and I enjoy training and empowering people.
