Mature student David Holcroft from Selly Oak, was a window cleaner before returning to education in 2016 to study Business Management at Bournville College. Having just graduated from Worcester University, David reminisces about his time at college.
“I knew I wanted to return to education for some time, in order to change my career.” Explains David, “Though I didn’t realise what options and funding were available to me until I came to an open day.”
One of the things that stands out to him about his time in college was how professional and helpful his tutors were. David added, “Especially during times of low confidence or personal struggles, it is a massive help to have tutors that take the time to make things clear.”
The advice he would give to his younger self, knowing what he knows now is, regardless of age, knuckle down and crack on, believe in yourself and don’t be afraid to fail. A successful journey is paved with failures, and ultimately, failure leads to success, providing you learn the importance of remaining determined.
