A Business Extended Diploma: D* D* D*
University: University College London to study Information Management for Business.
Lucas came to DLD in September 2016 from the Royal Russell School in order to study for the BTEC Extended Diploma in Business. Fuelled by his ambition of following in the family footsteps of owning and running his own business, Lucas flourished on the BTEC Business course. He had a strong work ethic, putting 100% into tasks and going further by reading around the subject to ensure he grasped all concepts. He also took the initiative to enrol on an online course with the University of Leeds which supported his understanding and application of Starting a Small Business. Lucas was open to feedback and strategies that will help him become an excellent leader and manager. He was a considerate student who gets on very well with both students and members of staff.
Lucas is a proficient user of IT and Microsoft Office and he was able to transfer this skill into his BTEC work through creating various pieces of coursework using Excel and PowerPoint. In this way he was capable of collating and presenting data effectively. Interestingly, he used his Media skills to produce an outstanding marketing campaign for promoting the new iPhone to young people. His campaign demonstrated a real understanding of his target market. Outside class, Lucas was a valued member of the DLD Football Team. He had real technical ability on the ball but was remarkably modest about his achievements. He was an integral part of the success of the team during his time here at DLD, the top goal scorer.
