Hopes and Aspirations

Here are some testimonials from past students of RSDD, giving some insight into what they are doing with their lives now; and what other potential students could look to do.


James Apprenticeship Awards 2015

Well done to James who was a winner in the Apprenticeship Awards 2015. 16,000 apprentices were entered and he was one of the 15 finalists. James was in our Secondary and Post 16 Departments and left RSDD in 2011. We are all very proud of his achievements.



I’m doing level 3 art and design and getting merits. I won an award for most outstanding effort in entry level maths last year out if the whole college!! I'm very proud of this.


I hope to achieve two qualifications in Level 3 which is Cake decoration and Accounting at Derby College. After that, I am looking for a job in Accounting/Finance and would like to set up my new cake business from home. If my business going well in few years time or so I may consider set up my new cake shop to the public in the future.
