Harvey Betts, 19, currently studying the BTEC Extended Diploma in Business has been successful in receiving an Apprenticeship offer to work as a Trainee Consultant from the global firm Ernst & Young. Following the completion of his time at Huish, Harvey will be moving to London with the hope to follow his dream career.
Harvey initially joined Huish in 2018 transferring from The Castle School where he completed his secondary education. He started off studying A Levels in Business, Maths and Economics but decided he didn’t feel these courses were for him. He returned to College the following year and enrolled on the Level 3 Business Extended Diploma. Harvey spoke on his decision to change courses saying “I’m so glad I made this decision because I would never have gotten the grades from A levels that I did from this course because the learning style of a BTEC definitely suited me better”.
The application process for the Ernst & Young Apprenticeship consisted of 5 rounds of interviews and around 5 months of waiting. It was an extremely competitive and lengthy journey in the application process alone. With the final interview stage including an hour-long interview with a Firm Director as well as a brief presentation which was then followed by a multitude of questions. It took a while for Harvey to hear back as he states, “I eagerly awaited my result and was overjoyed to discover that it was positive news and that I’ll be moving to London to start working in September!”
Speaking on his time at Huish and studying the Extended Diploma in Business Harvey said “I’ve had a great time with the course and the people I’ve met. The wide range of units you get to cover was the best part of the course for me. The course is never dull, and you’ll always be eager to learn more. I’d like to thank my teachers for their help and support throughout the course”.
