Warrington & Vale Royal College accounting apprentice thanks the ‘best tutor he’s ever had’

Warrington & Vale Royal College caught up with accounting apprentice alumni Cameron Rowe, who recently completed his level 4 apprenticeship and had nothing but praise for his tutor, Nicola Wilson. Cameron reflects fondly on his time at the college, and left an incredibly heart-warming message for Nicola upon completion of his course.

Cameron, a former pupil of Lymm High School, worked as a Care Assistant at Keates Care Home before deciding to explore the possibility of working in a more administrative role. It was then that Cameron began his accounting assistant apprenticeship. He chose to do this with Warrington & Vale Royal College as it was close to his workplace, had cheaper course fees than other colleges and has a great reputation for apprenticeships.

When discussing what he enjoyed most about studying at the college, Cameron had nothing but positive things to say. The facilities, such as the college’s fully-equipped Learning Resource Centre, aid independent study and provide adult students a place to work outside of the classroom. He was also incredibly complimentary of his course tutor, Nicola, whom he describes as being the best tutor he’s had throughout his many years in education. Cameron describes Nicola as being passionate, knowledgeable and supportive – three key characteristics of a first-class tutor.

To those considering studying an apprenticeship at Warrington & Vale Royal College, Cameron says: “The college has a good reputation for a reason. Make the most of the resources offered to you.” Cameron gave tutor Nicola a card as a parting gift in which he wrote some lovely words, including: “I’m AAT qualified! I can’t thank you enough for all your help and support over the years. I honestly couldn’t do it without you! 8 modules, 2 EPAs, 1 pandemic and a whole lot of memories! Thanks for being fabulous.”

Reflecting on Cameron’s time at the college, his tutor Nicola said: “Cameron was a pleasure to teach and will go far in his accounting career. I wish him all the best for the future. I hope we cross paths again soon!”

Since completing his level 4 accounting assistant apprenticeship, Cameron has been promoted from accounting assistant to accounts manager, where he works closely with the business and administration managers. His key responsibilities include managing payroll, monthly and annual bookkeeping and training new employees. In the future, Cameron looks forward to making more executive decisions and training someone to work alongside him. Once settled in his new role, Cameron hopes to work towards a chartership. Everyone at Warrington & Vale Royal College wishes him the best of luck for the future!
