Chloe Bartlett, Global Brand Coordinator, BBC Studios
How did studying at Pearson College London help you get into the world of business?
Through working at the BBC full time and studying with Pearson 1 day a week over an accelerated period of 2 years it gave me the opportunity to understand how to apply theory to real life practices in an intense environment. The skills learnt from managing both challenging but rewarding paths that Pearson and the BBC gave me it made the transition into my current job role easier.
Where have you gone on to work and what is your role?
I have been fortunate enough to keep working with the BBC as a Global Brand Coordinator within the Children’s team at BBC Studios.
What are you working on at the moment?
I am supporting and managing the key franchise children brands for BBC Studios, implementing them into different territories around the world, working with some amazing global, internal and external teams to help land the brands with great success into the localised areas.
What was your favourite part of studying at Pearson College London?
enjoyed working with such like-minded individuals, all having chosen the route away from a traditional university but being dedicated to the success that the challenge could result in. Lots of my friends who went to a traditional university struggled to understand the concept of going to university 1 day a week for 2 years but also working full time because it didn’t have the same party feel they had a university. Though I am so pleased I never went down that route, Pearson College London gave me the opportunity to fast track my education whilst jumping straight into the world of work whilst still having fun at the same time.
If you had to sum up your time at Pearson College London in one word, what would it be and why?
Eye-opening - Pearson has given me a whole new perspective on what studying in an innovative environment can do for individuals who want to work hard. I never knew what degree apprenticeships were before Pearson but I am so glad I found out. The valuable skills learnt from both university and work during the entry point into my career have built the foundations for my future so I am incredibly grateful.
