Nigel Newton is a former student of Oldham College ( 1982 to 1987 ) where he studied for a plumbing Craft Certificate and an ONC in construction before continuing his studies at University. Nigel is a serial entrepreneur having established and sold several successful companies. For the past 16 years he has been Managing Director of Clarke Telecom which is part of Renew Holdings plc , a business listed on the AIM Stockmarket. Nigel didnt get chance to go to university full time, instead all of his qualifications have been gained on day release whilst working full time. He has a First Class BSc degree in Quantity Surveying from Salford University and a Masters Degree in Business Management MBA from Leeds University Business School. He is currently reading for a Masters Degree in Executive Coaching at Ashridge. Nigel says - getting a good education was a challenge for a boy from my background, but i realised that if you have a goal to aim for and you are determined enough then education is a springboard to greater things. Oldham College gave me the opportunity to gain some meaningful qualifications and I grasped that opportunity with both hands. I will be forever grateful to Oldham College and to return a favour I would like to play my part in helping other young adults achieve their ambitions.
