    As Entrepreneur in Residence at NWRC one of my key roles is to identify and support innovative ideas and entrepreneurial thinking throughout the college network. The IDEATOR Awards serves as a stepping stone for both students and recent NWRC student alumni to develop innovative business ideas further.

    I studied Level 2 Maths and English and successfully passed both. It was a great course, and it was great working in a smaller group. I’ve made friends for life and I’m considering progressing to another part-time course with the College.
