"Since leaving College, my rugby career has progressed well. I signed a contract with the Worcester Warriors as an Academy player and since then, I have been training and playing full time with the Warriors. I made my first team debut last season in what usd to be known as the Anglo Welsh Cup and I have played regularly in the A League for the Worcester Cavaliers. I was selected to play for the England Under 20's in the Six Nations and then in the Under 20's World Cup which took place in France over the summer. I played in four of the five matches and we reached the final, where we lost narrowly to the French. It was a fantastic experience playing in the final in front of 20,000 French Supporters. Since the start of this season I have made my priemiership debut against Leicester when I came on as a replacement, scoring two tries including the winner in the final minute of the game."

"It wasn’t until I got my GCSE results and started at Worcester Sixth Form College that I actually thought a career in medicine might be possible.
I started College in 2011 studying Maths, Chemistry, Biology, Law and Critical Thinking AS Levels. Knowing how competitive medicine was, I knew I was going to be kept very busy alongside my A Levels. Worcester Sixth Form College offered a Medical Ethics Class and Professional Programme, which was perfect for students like me who would benefit from extra opportunities for their university application. They gave me an insight into the ethical and professional side to medicine whilst developing my communication skills which was much appreciated in my following interviews. Through the continued help and support of the careers advisers in College, I was able to secure an offer at Cardiff Medical School. Luckily my A Level results were a match too!
I have always been a keen Sportswomen, so fitting in Netball was very important to me, and was a much-needed mid-week relax. The college was very flexible at allowing me to continue with my busy college timetable but still providing me time to represent the College in the Netball team.
After 5 years at Cardiff Medical school, and 3 years working as a junior doctor in the NHS I am now in the process of applying for specialist training. I take every opportunity to return to WSFC to give talks and seminars on what life is likely working as a junior doctor in the NHS."

"I attended Worcester Sixth Form College from 1997 to 1999 and I left with A Levels in French, English Language and Sociology. I went on to achieve a 2:1 degree from Swansea University in French with Language Studies and Business. Since graduation I have enjoyed a successful career in recruitment, firstly in IT and over the last 10 years, in Education Recruitment. I set up a new brand in our sector, 'Smile Education', in 2009 and we are now a government approved supplier with a turnover of £8.5 million employing 25 staff. My proudest moments were winning ' Recruitment Company of the Year' in 2017, developing staff from trainee to management/board level and doing a large amount of charity/community work."

Katy graduated from Swansea University with a 2:1 in French with Language Studies and Business
"After College, I enrolled on a Sports Therapy Degree at the University of Worcester, achieving a 2:1. I then went on to study for a MSc in Sports and Exercise Rehabilitation. I am now the Lead Soft Tissue Therapist for the Premiership Rugby Club, Wasps. While the players are out doing Rudby training I am either providing first aid cover, or inside providing soft tissue treatment that will complement the rehabilitation of injured players. On a game day, I provide treatment to any player that needs it before the game. I travel to all games with the team which has meant some prettty cool trips to Portugal, Ireland, and France (although I usually only get to see the airport, hotel and stadium).
On my days off I also run my own sports injury and massage clinic in St John's Sport Centre. I enjoy seeing and treating a variety of people, not just the Rugby players that I see every day at Wasps."

Izzy graduated from the University of Worcester with a 2:1 in Sports Therapy
"Since leaving College, I have been successful in starting an apprenticeship at CH2M, looking at structures around Worcestershire and doing maintenance on bridges and retaining walls around the country. I am now studying for BTEC level 3 in Civil Engineering and a Level 3 Diploma in Civil Engineering for Technicians which is a work-based qualification. I also have plans to complete my EngTech which will start me on my professional qualification to becoming a Charted Engineer.
I started my journey to where I am now by studying Geology, Physics, Maths with Mechanics and Applied Science at Worcester Sixth Form College. I first discovered civil engineering as a small section of my Geology course, looking at case studies of buildings and structures that can survive natural disasters. My fascination with structures started there and gave me an aim for life once College was over. I applied for the apprentice position and was so pleased to be the successful candidate"
