Chloe’s story –

My background… Straight from leaving school I started an apprenticeship through my local college where I completed a NVQ Level 2 and Level 3 in Business Administration.  During this time I moved through various departments gaining knowledge in each which would help me to decide which specific way I would like to progress my career within the business.  Upon finishing these qualifications, I decided that I would like to work within the Commercial Division, in our business.  We have a Commercial Academy which is a learning group for all employees completing a Commercial qualification.  I decided along with the help and guidance of the Commercial Director and the Learning and Development Manager that my next step would be to complete the Certificate in Commercial Management through the Distant Learning Partnership.  I really liked the idea of distant learning as I would be able to study at my own speed and know that if there were any issues to arise that these could easily be resolved with the help of an assigned tutor.  All text books and reading material was also provided through the Distant Learning Partnership so I was always sure that I had the information to be able to complete assignments.

Studying … During my time studying I moved to another department internally which also meant a promotion and relocation of office/site.  This was a very tough time but I had full support from my former Line Manager, my internal mentor and also my new Line Manager.  This move meant that I achieved the internal promotion to a Trainee Quantity Surveyor which had been my goal since beginning the course.  My main focus during the Certificate in Commercial Management was to achieve the best grade that I possibly could whilst working full time, I wanted to prove that I could achieve my goals.

I have now completed the Certificate in Commercial Management with a Distinction and I have also achieved a further promotion to an Assistant Quantity Surveyor.

Completing this course through the Distant Learning Partnership has really kicked off my career.  I am now looking into further Distant Learning courses that will help my career progress even further.
