@BarnsleyCollege student, Ella White, has taken the leap to turn her passion for nails and nail art into a business venture. This was made possible due to the support provided by iTrust, the College’s business start-up programme exclusively for students.
Former Barnsley College student, Rachel Scott, is celebrating achieving a first class (Hon) in BSc Business and Management, allowing her to enrol on a Master of Science (MSc) in Business with Human Resources at the University of Lincoln.
Rachel started her student journey in 2016, at the age of 33, when she enrolled on an Access to Higher Education (HE) Business course. This one-year course is designed to help students develop their subject knowledge by studying a range of topics relating to the Business sector including Human Resource Management; Business Finance; Leadership and Marketing whilst improving their study skills and building confidence which will help them get the grades required to study a higher-level course.
Rachel said: “I wanted to progress my career, but as a single parent, I needed to be able to study somewhere that fitted around my childcare requirements. I live in Barnsley, so the College’s location was perfect.
