An Edinburgh College Accounting student is hoping to calculate his way to award success as he goes up against fellow students at the Scottish Apprenticeship Awards 2018. Nineteen-year-old Junjie Xu, who studied a Financial Services Foundation Apprenticeship at Edinburgh College before progressing onto a HND Accounting course, has been shortlisted for Foundation Apprentice of the Year at the annual awards, for his achievements while studying at the College and working with the Financial Services team at Virgin Money.
Junjie, who is partially sighted, doesn’t let his visual impairment affect his learning or willingness to succeed and embarked upon his Foundation Apprenticeship while studying at the Royal Blind School for Visually Impaired and Blind Children. Junjie said:
“When I heard that I was a finalist, it felt great! All of the hard work that I put into achieving the award has paid off and I have overcome some difficult challenges.”
