James Goddard

James Goddard studied at Tameside College from 2008 till 2013. After graduating from the Glossopdale Community 6th Form College, James studied towards a BTEC in Electrical / Electronic Engineering and achieved an amazing double Distinction. Shortly after completing his BTEC, he studied for an HND in Electrical / Electronic Engineering which was awarded to him with a double Merit. James is now working as a full-time Field-Engineer at TH Plastics Ltd in Glossop, an innovative award-winning company operating in the plastics industry.

James said about his experience at the College: “Whilst studying at Tameside College, I was able to develop my confidence and learn key skills that helped me progress in my chosen career path. I enjoyed my course thoroughly thanks to the atmosphere in class and the relationship that the lecturers had with us. Wherever I hit a snag with the work I was covering, I could confidently get back on track after speaking to my course tutor or any of the lecturers. The support given by the lecturers was second to none.

My future plans, at this point in time, are to progress my career and move into managing my own team within the industry. I have already had a taste of managing installation & service projects, and I would love the opportunity to excel at it. As well as this, I plan on broadening my experience and learning about applications outside of my field. I feel that to really enjoy my job, I must be challenged with new and different applications.”

James’s tutor, Dr. Sana Rahmatallah, said: “I always found James to be a diligent and hard working student who had an excellent attendance and timekeeping record. James’s ability and hard work ensured he gained an overall double distinction grade for the qualification and he also achieved the annual college prize in recognition of this. James was a hardworking and highly motivated student who could clearly work under his own self-management or as part of a team. His communications skills were very good and thus enabled him to produce good clear assessment pieces and project reports along with class-room presentations. On completion of this course, James progressed onto the HNC and then HND in Electrical & Electronic Engineering. He finished his HND in July 2013 with double Merit and he also achieved the annual college prize in recognition of this.”
