Former student, James Vincent, means business as he continues to build on his successful career as the Co-owner of local marketing and public relations agency, Hot Source Creative.
Based in Bromsgrove and Worcester, Hot Source Creative specialises in strategy, creativity, design and innovative technology.
James who attended the former Worcester College of Technology, now Heart of Worcestershire College (HoW College), studied business before progressing onto the University of Worcester to complete his degree in Business Management and Marketing.
Talking about his time at the College, James said:
“The College gave me the skills that I needed to develop as an entrepreneur. The flexibility of the course enabled me to work alongside my studies, I attended lectures on average two days a week, which gave me the opportunity to earn as well as further my education.”
Commenting on the support at college, James added:
“When I finished my A-levels I lacked confidence but the College gave me the skills and the knowledge I needed to succeed. I found the College environment really supportive, the lecturers were always on hand to help me and the small class sizes allowed me to have more one-to-one tutorials which expanded my understanding of the business sector. The modules covered different areas of business from marketing to management; which helped me decide which area I wanted to specialise in at university. ”
HoW College offers a range of business courses from Level 2 qualifications to a full degree delivered in partnership with Staffordshire University.
