After finishing her A-level studies at the college’s Rhos-on-Sea campus, Sophie Ffoulkes, aged 23 from Abergele, was offered a place at the University of Chester’s Business School, eventually graduating with a first-class honours degree.
Soon after graduating from Chester, she gained one of only a few places on the NHS Wales Financial Management Graduate Programme.
Sophie said: “I am thoroughly enjoying my new role. My time at Coleg Llandrillo was fantastic. The lecturers at the college were more than happy to assist with both academic and personal development. You will get back what you put into your college experience.
“Studying A-level Business Studies has given me the platform to widen my educational choices and career options. The continued careers advice and support throughout, assisted me in securing a place at my first-choice university and a position on the NHS Wales Financial Management Graduate Programme.”
Coleg Llandrillo’s programme area manager for A-levels, Access to Higher Education, Business & Education, Conor Merrick, said: “We are absolutely delighted with Sophie’s success. She was a talented and hard-working student during her years here at the Rhos Sixth and thoroughly deserves her success.”
