Hi, I’m Danni and I’m studying A Levels at Halesowen College. I decided to take English Literature, Creative Writing and Psychology mainly because I have a passion for studying English and writing.

Hi my name is Cyndi and I study A Levels at Halesowen College. My goal is to gain a deep understanding of global business practices and to be able to set up my own business. My grandfather is my biggest inspiration; he owns a vineyard and seeing how committed he is to his company had a big influence on my decision of wanting to be an International manager. A particular module in AS Business called “Managers vs Leaders” caught my attention last year.

Hi my name is Lotty and I am responsible for coordinating the learner blog for the SWITCH project. The learners felt it was important that the teachers accompany them on this journey and write their own blog posts so on that note I’ll tell you a little about myself. I am 28 years old and have studied and worked at Halesowen College for more than 10 years. I did my A Levels here before deciding that I would rather pursue a career than go to university. Six months after I made this decision I started working at the college as a Library Assistant. Continue reading “000189”

I think that I am good at communicating with people that I know and communicating with people that I meet for the first time. I am best at verbal communication as I enjoy it when someone is speaking to me and not just texting or writing. It can be hard to understand if someone is typing fast and making mistakes. Continue reading “Communication”
