Scott decided to enrol for a BTEC Applied Science when he was offered a job as an Apprentice on a local refinery. Having developed a keen interest in space when he saw Comet Hale-Bopp in 1987, Scott has been inspired by his course and tutors and now hopes to go to university and study for a career in Astronomy

"I was never a strong learner at school but I've now got a taste for education and have realised it's something I really enjoy. My tutors have really inspired me to go to university and the course has given me background to Science that I refused to learn at school."
