Business student Hannaliese has ambitions to make it in the professional world and has already secured herself a successful summer placement with the help of the CG Ambitions team. She believes the skills and knowledge that she’s gained at college, both through her course and through college life, will help her to succeed in the world of business. Read on to hear about her experience…

What’s the best thing about studying at Coleg Gwent?

“I’ve gained so much confidence since joining college and made new friends too. Our tutors are amazing, they put in so much effort and really care about us getting our grades at the end of the year. I’m so proud of gaining enough confidence to join the Students’ Union as I didn’t have much confidence in high school. But then I came to college and thought the Students’ Union would give me some great experience – I’m now successfully completing my course alongside being a Student Ambassador. I’d never have been confident enough to do that before!”

How did the CG Ambitions team support you?

“The CG Ambitions team helped me to create my CV and a covering letter when I told them about an organisation I really wanted to work for. They gave lots of tips to enhance the content of my CV and I also had help with preparing for interviews, learning skills to help me on the day and making me feel more confident. Their support helped me to get a summer job at the organisation – I really enjoyed working there.”

What are your long term goals after finishing your course?

“I’d like to become an Administrative Assistant and then go into Business Management. Long term I’d love to work within a profitable and successful company, maybe even taking over the management there. I think the modules on my course will be really helpful in achieving these goals as they cover a lot of knowledge that is useful for running a business.”
