David credits his college!
A Quantity Surveying graduate has credited City of Glasgow College with helping him find success.
David Gorman, 29, who grew up in Rutherglen where he attended Stonelaw High, originally began studying construction but later changed to quantity surveying at the Scottish college.
After leaving college in June, he applied for an apprenticeship with internationallyrenowned Turner Townsend and, following a video interview and successful assessment, joined the company in the summer.
David started at the college in its building on North Hanover Street and appreciated the move to their City campus.
He said:“City of Glasgow College was my first choice to study and I found it a challenging but rewarding experience where you definitely got out what you put it in.
“The type of learning and teaching they provide allowed me to progress directly into third year at university. The lecturers offered a wealth of knowledge and experience which I not only use academically, but both inside and out of work.”
David’s main challenge at college was keeping up his studies, and getting enough sleep, while holding down an almost full-time job to help pay his way.
However, thanks to a lot of hard work and no small amount of determination, David achieved an A in his graded unit and successfully passed his HND.
