Awards were presented for all of the different full-time courses and apprenticeships offered at the college.

Students from the music performance course opened the ceremony with acoustic performances before the guest speaker, gold medallist at the Rio Paralympics 2016 David Smith, spoke of his experience and sheer determination to achieve gold in the boccia competitions.

Winners of the awards were selected for their achievements over and above their peers with some now studying at universities including Cambridge, and others moving straight into employment within their chosen career.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to join winners’ families and friends to celebrate the amazing achievements of all of our students.

“Our 2016 winners are just a small number of the hundreds of the success stories we see each year and as always I was proud to hear how studying in further education has enhanced so many lives.
