Zsuzsanna Kato – Finalist Student of the Year 2016

Zsuzsanna studied for her Medical Secretary Plus Diploma with AMSPAR in our Oxford Circus centre in London. Originally from Hungary where she was a nurse, Zsuzsanna had hoped to find a similar role when she arrived in the UK but struggled to find a suitable position which made best use of her qualifications. Rather than let this deter her, Zsuzsanna decided to train to gain a Medical Administration or Secretarial role so that she would be able to remain working in the Medical industry.

So, Zsuzsanna began her training will the full support and encouragement of her partner and family and friends back in Hungary. Whilst training regularly in the Oxford Circus centre, Zsuzsanna took on shift work and continued to work hard to ensure there was a stable income still coming in whilst learning her new skills and also taking English classes to further her English language skills.

One sad point of her time training with our Oxford Circus centre was when her father suddenly passed away. Zsuzsanna of course returned to Hungary to be with her family and help with arrangements for a period of time. Despite her grief, Zsuzsanna returned to the UK to complete her studies and found her training therapeutic as it kept her busy and distracted during that difficult period of her life.

The training team in the Oxford Circus centre said Zsuzsanna worked really hard. If she did not pass an exam first time (which was not very often), she never let this put her off or upset her. Instead she would use this as motivation to study longer and harder to ensure she passed the next attempt. Her commitment paid off as she received an overall Distinction on her Medical Secretary Diploma as well as a Distinction for her AMSPAR exam.

Zsuzsanna’s main goal was to secure a role as either a Medical Receptionist or Medical Secretary where she could utilise her previous skills alongside her newly acquired qualifications and she was delighted to find success with this goal as just as she completed her Diploma training, she gained a role in a Doctors Surgery as a Medical Receptionist. Proof that hard work and determination can pay off!

Our team in Oxford Circus said… 

“Zsuzsanna deserves this award because she has worked so hard to achieve her qualifications despite the various obstacles that have threatened to hold her back. Zsuzsanna is evidently not afraid of a challenge and her tenacity, dedication, sheer will and positive attitude have been an inspiration.”
