Why Forth Valley College?

I’ve always regretted not doing further study after I left school and wanted to prove to myself that I could do it.  I had an interest in accounting through running a dairy farm with my husband so once I found the course on the website I applied straight away – before I could talk myself out of it!

Best bit

Achieving a pass mark of 99% for my HNC graded unit and being top of my class.

How has Forth Valley College helped you build your future?

I’ve managed to get all the skills I need to get a job, whilst still having time to run the farm and look after my three teenage boys.  I’m also more confident in my abilities.

After college – what next?

I’d like to get a part-time job ideally related to the agriculture industry.  Something where I can use my accounting skills or even dabble a bit in IT or law as I covered these in my course too.

What’s your dream career?

A lady of leisure!
