The qualification gives Thomas the recognition for his professional learning experience and hard work.
Thomas said of his achievement, “I have been with NT Killingley for 7 years, within those 7 years they have supported me with my studies. This includes a level 3 HNC course, Level 4/5 foundation degree and finally my Professional Practice in Quantity Surveying and Commercial Management BA Honours degree.
Moving forward I hope to undertake an RHS course in Plant Growth, Health and Applied Propagation. This will increase my understanding of planting and aid me in my job role when discussing issues with Architects and Clients In the future.”
