Gillian Bell

Course: Chartered Management Institute (CMI)

Gillian was enrolled on the course by her employer, County Durham NHS Trust, who wanted her to study the CMI course as part of her continued professional development.

She said:

"I had studied a Medical Secretaries diploma at New College Durham previous to this and I had found that course to be really useful to my career, so I was excited at the prospect of studying at New College Durham again.”

“The College had a nice, friendly atmosphere and all the staff were very approachable. There was a wide range of people from a variety of different backgrounds enrolled on the course which meant that we could learn from each others experiences in management. This helped me develop knowledge that could be directly applied to the workplace really quickly.”

“After completing the course I have a lot more confidence in myself as a manager, so much so that I now take on a lot higher level tasks. I have enrolled on a BA (Hons) Business, Management and Administration degree which will help me develop my career further.”

“I am hugely grateful to my employer for sponsoring me throughout my studies and I know that the course has made me a better Administrative Manager within the company. I feel really proud of myself for completing my CMI course as it is the first academic study I have done in over 30 years.”
