Before joining Pearson College London, Kati studied Biochemistry at university before moving on to become part of the Admissions and Recruitment team at an independent school for over two years. This experience of working within a school gave Kati an excellent insight into how the education system works, and what school leavers are looking for when exploring their Higher Education options.

Emily’s interest in Higher Education and Student Recruitment began when she undertook work experience at the University of London working in the Admissions department. This gave her a good understanding of Higher Education which then sparked her enthusiasm to pursue a career at Pearson College London. Emily is a Degree Apprentice; working full time and also studying at Pearson College London. Emily is really enjoys guiding students in choosing the best route possible to start their career, particularly after having recently experienced this challenge herself.

Before joining the team, Emily was studying towards her A Levels, and also recently took part in a World Challenge expedition in Swaziland, where she volunteered to help build a school for children orphaned by HIV and AIDS.
