22 year old Stephanie from Tyldesley attended Fred Longworth High School, where she secured 8 GCSEs grade A*-C in a range of traditional and creative subjects. On completion, Stephanie attended a local college to study AS levels but due to ill-health, she was unable to continue. Stephanie then began a BTEC in Business Studies, where she achieved a triple distinction. Like many academically able students, Stephanie was encouraged to apply to university via the UCAS process and received offers from all five of her choices. However, having enjoyed the practical side of her BTEC Stephanie decided that this was very much a path she would like to continue on, resulting in her rejecting her university offers in favour of an Apprenticeship. Stephanie applied to The Skills Company and successful secured her role with CM Solicitors in October 2015.
