Awards evenings celebrates the successes and achievements of Wiltshire College students

Wiltshire College hosted its annual awards evenings celebrating the achievements of students throughout the academic year.

More than 70 awards were presented to full time learners for Best Overall Student or Most Improved Student in ceremonies held at all four campuses in the last two weeks of term.

Principal Amanda Burnside said: “I am always very moved by the stories that I hear at these events.
“There are stories about students who have overcome huge barriers to success; those who never dreamed of achieving the qualifications they have; students who have gone on to secure great jobs, start new careers or progress in their chosen fields; students who are going to university for the first time in the history of their family, and students who have achieved beyond their expectation.

“The award winners were selected from many others for their efforts, achievements and going the extra mile.

“All the winners should be very proud of that and the college is very proud of them.”

The college was pleased to be joined by Chair of Governors Helen Birchenough and Vice Chairman Mark Lello at the awards ceremonies.

A surprise Principals award was also presented to one student at each campus and this year the winners were Angus Dagger, Rebecca Haddock, Betsy Bond and Jodie Chidlow.
