Sussex Downs is celebrating success within its business and accounting courses, which has led to the college’s latest apprenticeship placement.

Sam Alvarez, curriculum leader for business provision at Sussex Downs College, said she was proud that another of the students has been snapped up for an apprenticeship.

Eastbourne accounting firm, Breeze Associates, has taken Harry Maynard on board after he achieved a B grade in his A Level business course.

Harry is now an AAT (Associate of Accounting Technicians) apprentice.

Sam Alvarez said, “The increase in demand for these courses is fuelled by the excellent reputation we are building as a consequence 
of our exceptional results, 
but also because of our increased success in working with local employers to find apprenticeships for our students.

“I am extremely proud of our strong team of teachers, students and apprentices.

“In recent years we have expanded our teaching team, recruiting some of the best practitioners in the field.

“We have also seen a significant increase in apprenticeships in accounting.

“Business is certainly booming in East Sussex which is great news.”
