Jack Nicholls

Level 3 Business

The programme at BCoT provides a really broad understanding of business organisations and how they work."


Jack joined BCoT to do a Level 3 BTEC in Business & Enterprise, he has now progressed to a Level 4 course.

“BCoT has given me so many great opportunities since I started here. I loved my course; the tutors helped create a nice environment and I knew I wanted to stay here to further my education.”

For his work experience placement he spent six weeks at Merit Recruitment.  Although the office environment was new to him, Jack said he soon got used to it and quickly felt part of the team. 

“I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first started. It was great though, as I was given responsibilities from the beginning so wanted to prove that I could do the job and do it well."

Merit went on to offer Jack a permanent part time job which he took whilst he was on the HE course.

“It was brilliant when Merit offered me a job at the end of the placement! Apparently I exceeded all their expectations, so this was a great compliment and a real boost to my confidence.”
