Dave Essam

Operations director attributes career journey to confidence gained at Derby College

I liked my time at college. It was a good set up and going there did a lot for my confidence. The lecturers were great – really supportive – and I’m still in touch with one of them, Julie Gibson. My family was going through a tough time back then as my mum had just been diagnosed with MS. The staff on my course were understanding and did all they could to help me. They worked hard for all of us and wanted everyone on the course to do well.
