After completing his studies, Trevor went on to study Business Management at the University of Westminster, he achieved a 1st and was awarded as the highest achiever on his course. Subsequently, Trevor joined BT, in his current role as a Business Partner in BT’s Consumer Division (BT, BT TV/Sport, EE, PlusNet) alongside his role as a 5G Transformation Leader for EE.

Trevor has launched his own skills-development programme ‘ELEVATE’, supported by BT, which exclusive to CTK. The aim of the programme is to give young learners the skills, knowledge and experiences for the higher education and the world of work.
