Star Student January 2024: Symon Carlson

Personal Tutor: Ian

After having an interest in finance throughout secondary school, I decided to commit to these studies at A-Level, having taken Accounting, Business and Economics A-Levels.

After completing my A-Levels, I joined Albert Goodman in February 2022, and have been progressing through my AAT studies well over the last two years. I completed AAT Level 3 with a distinction in May 2023, and am now halfway through my Level 4, hoping to finish it this summer.

I have thoroughly enjoyed working at Albert Goodman over the last two years as this is a vibrant workplace. I try to get involved where I can, helping with the preparation of socials as well as enjoying the odd piece of cake at our charity bake offs, that support of charity of the year: Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance!

Personal Tutor comments:

Symon has always been an exemplary student, and it’s great to see him progress towards the end of his level 4.

His results have been superb, and he’s always keen to get involved with things at our college day sessions, chatting to other students about their shared experiences, which is great. His portfolio work has been good throughout, and his understanding of the skills and behaviours shines through in his approach to his studies.

As such, he has been an absolute pleasure to support, although I can’t take too much credit there as he’s very self-motivated!
