Celebrating Success

BCoT is celebrating its most successful results ever following final publication of success and achievement rates. 

The results are outstanding, a delighted Principal, Anthony Bravo, said: "We are an exceptional provider of vocational education in Basingstoke. The results demonstrate that our learners are inspired and they succeed and excel, progressing to their next level with a great foundation for a future career." 

Here are just some success stories from our former students

Amber Pope studied Access to Higher Education in Health, she is now a qualified Midwife working at Basingstoke Maternity Unit.

“Studying at BCoT gave me the confidence and assertiveness that I never thought I had. I learnt the skill of academic writing which was extremely useful at University, I learnt how to research and I developed the skill of being able to get up in front of a group of people and deliver a presentation. BCoT gave me a great foundation in which I could commence my university degree.

I would highly recommend BCoT, it’s a fantastic place to study. Taking this course has completely changed my life and I will be forever grateful to all the staff members that believed in me and made it possible. 

I am just one success story to emerge from BCoT now it’s time for you to be the next one.”

Beth Hewett-Stanley studied on the Higher National Certificate in Construction, she is now a Technician at AECOM UK

“The staff went above and beyond their job description to ensure we were getting the help and support needed to complete the tasks assigned to us, their helpful and positive attitude towards passing the course provided me with the encouragement I desperately needed.

The on-site facilities allow you to have access to the very latest software as well as the ability to go to the library and use their many resources whenever you need.

Whilst I was undertaking this course I had a goal in mind, and this course has become a massive help getting me towards that. I am now working as a technician for a large civil engineering company based in Newcastle and I am studying towards my degree in civil engineering.”

I am now planning to do a top up degree through the Open University, and also doing a Diploma in Education and Training!”
