Hello, my name is Tito Clark, I’m 21, I studied a BTEC Level 3 in Business Management at South Essex College and this is my story.

I chose to study at the College because it was offering a fantastic business course that included all the modules that I was interested in, and I believed that it was the logical next best step for me.

When I was studying at secondary school I wasn’t really interested in education full stop, but when I was studying at the College it all remained relevant to what I was interested in so it made it easy to study.

In my second year of college I decided to start a business. It is a branding agency called Brand 21 and we design business cards, logos – any sort of branding or promotional material for businesses, we deal with manly small businesses to help them but what we do that is different from anywhere else is only use students such as design students. This enables us to give the students experience so they benefit and also we benefit because not only are we getting our name out there but we would be earning a commission based on that. It’s a nice full circle of everyone benefitting.

The College course massively influenced my decision to go to university because I found that I enjoyed what I studied and I would look at the modules that were on the course and thought ‘do you know what? I really enjoyed that’. When I then looked at the university course I wanted to get on I saw that modules were just extensions of the modules I had studied at the College so it seemed like a perfect fit. One of the modules I studied at South Essex College was about started a business and I thought to myself ‘if I can start a business there…’.

It was more difficult in real life of course, but I used all the skills I had learnt at College and it made it a lot easier to start a business.

There is no downside to starting something new, so if you think you would like to try a business course just evaluate your options and go for it and see what you think.
