Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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.

Suc­cess Grad­u­ate David is work­ing with the renowned Turner Townsend project fol­low­ing his suc­cess­ful ap­pli­ca­tion with them
