      Faye graduates with first-class honours from the Open University

    Faye Tester, our Acting Environment Manager based in Glasgow, graduated from the Open University last weekend with a first-class honours Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in Environmental Management and Technology.

    Since joining us in 2009, Faye has progressed through a number of roles with us. In her current role as Acting Environment Manager, she is involved in issues from waste management to environmental compliance-across the whole the company. For over seven years, Faye has juggled working full-time with studying for her degree in lunch breaks and evenings. Faye said: “Studying was really hard work, but so worth it knowing I have a successful career with my well-earned degree. My studies were really enjoyable and when I found out I was graduating with a first, it was the best feeling.”

    Susan Stewart, Director of The OU in Scotland, said: “Our students come from all kinds of backgrounds and from all over Scotland and they study for lots of different reasons, but what they all have in common is a fierce desire to fit learning into their busy lives. Faye is a fantastic example of that commitment and dedication, and I’m extremely proud of her and everyone else that graduated with The Open University in Scotland this weekend.”
