Donna Martin

Business Administration Graduate

Programme attended: Business Administration and Technology (Level 3)

TPP’s Business Administration programme helped Donna Martin change careers when an injury meant she could no longer be a personal trainer.

“I didn’t know what the future held or when I’d recover and, while I knew my way around the office, I didn’t have any qualifications or background in that area.

“TPP’s Business Administration programme was great – I learned so much more about office procedures and operating programmes, but the best aspect was the doors it opened for me.”

Donna got a temporary role at the West Coast District Health Board not long after finishing her training, after being recommended for the job by her TPP tutor.

“I went on to be offered a permanent position as a Personal Assistant offering administrative support to a large team. I’m really enjoying the new role. If it wasn’t for TPP and the contacts the tutors have, I might not have got my foot in the door.

“The training has made a big difference for me. Even if you’re not sure which direction you want to take, the training can help you learn more about all sorts of things and decide where you want to be.”
