"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."

"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."

"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."

"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"

"I began volunteering and working at my local radio station, Free radio during my time at Worcester Sixth Form College. By the time I had graduated Worcester University, I had been offered work reading the traffic and travel at BBC Hereford and Worcester. I was terrible at it but eager to learn and just get my foot in the door! Before long I was picking up reporting shifts as well as work for the BBC West Midlands in Birmingham. I basically said yes to everything and before long, I was working full time for the BBC.

During my time with the corporation, I have worked producing live radio shows, developing and filming stories for The One Show and now work for BBC Stories which makes content for online and social media. I come up with ideas, develop them often present them too."
