Andrew Rogers goes back to College

Andrew Rogers, planning graduate and one of our 60 STEM ambassadors returned to his college, Coleg Cambria, to speak to over 50 A level Geography students about life as a planning graduate. 

He delivered three presentations which discussed the services we provide, the sectors in which we work, followed by a case study on a project in Warrington town centre. Andrew chose the Warrington case study to help the students with a module they were currently completing entitled 'Changing Places' which saw them investigate post-industrial decline in English and Welsh towns and how regeneration can help to reverse this. Working with the students, Andrew used his experience from his graduate placement to exchange views on how Warrington town centre could be improved.

As one of the largest colleges in the UK, Coleg Cambria offers many Apprenticeship and Traineeship opportunities with strong links to local employment and is officially a Register of Apprenticeship Training Provider (ROATP). The college offers world-class facilities including a Centre of Excellence for Engineering. In 2015 it was awarded the highest Estyn (the Welsh equivalent to Ofsted).

Andrew attended the college’s Wrexham Campus until 2011, where he completed A Levels in Geography, Geology and German. The college offered him work experience opportunities as well as the tools he needed in order to pursue a career in property.
