Sarah Gregory, Level 3 Event Management student at Eastleigh College, has been awarded the annual ‘Entrepreneur of the Year Award’ for her hard work and commitment during the course this year.
This is Sarah’s final year at the College, before starting an Apprenticeship at Hampshire County Council. Sarah was ecstatic to be named this year’s winner: “I’m overwhelmed! But I feel accomplished, I’ve been here for two years and I’ve worked really hard.
“I’ve really enjoyed my time at Eastleigh. I’d definitely recommend the Event Management course; it prepares you for a job but you still have the option to go to Uni if you want to.”
The award, along with an amazing prize of an iPad Air, was presented by Paul Everington, Contracts Manager at Concept Building Services. The company employ several electrical and plumbing Apprentices who train at Eastleigh College, and are keen to invest in the potential of all young people.
Caroline Perrett, course lecturer, is proud of Sarah’s determination: “Since the start, Sarah has demonstrated passion, drive, dedication and creativity! She is very conscientious, and can manage any situation. Sarah’s future is looking very bright – she’s predicted a Distinction * as her final grade, and she’ll be an asset to any employer!”
In the past, Event Management students have progressed onto many different career avenues, from Events Co-ordinators to Sales and Marketing and even Law!
