Adam Derrick (Business Administration)
Attended St Brendan's 2011 - 2013
Subjects Studied: ICT, Computing, Business BTEC,
Previous School: St Bede's Catcholic College
Since leaving St Brendan's I have been working as a Business Administration Apprentice for Bristol City Council in Economic Development. I have also become the chair of my local war-gaming group.
My biggest achievement to date was when I achieved Double Distinction* in my Business Studies BTEC.
One piece of advice I would give to current students is that an apprenticeship is not just a way to make money while studying – it also grants you priceless experience.
My biggest regret from my time at St Brendan's was not getting involved in extra-curricular activities in my second year.
In ten years' time I hope I will still be working for Bristol City Council or going into a teaching career.
