Cheshire College – South & West hosted the first of two annual College Awards ceremonies at its Ellesmere Port campus this week.
Celebrating the achievements of learners over the past 12 months, 36 individual awards were presented to the delight of parents, family, friends, college colleagues and employers.
Dhesi, the college’s principal and chief executive, commented: “This is a very special evening for Cheshire College – South & West.
“It’s a wonderful opportunity for us to recognise the outstanding achievements of these learners, in front of the family, friends and tutors who supported them along the way.
“We are committed to helping all of our learners reach their potential so that they can enjoy successful futures.”
Learners receiving awards had completed a wide range of courses this year including vocational qualifications, higher education qualifications and apprenticeships.
They were praised for their academic achievements and for the ambition, determination and enthusiasm they’ve demonstrated.
Award winners and their guests arrived to a selection of delicious non-alcoholic ‘mocktails’ and canapés made and served by the college’s hospitality and catering students.
The evening started with a stunning performance by the college’s dance students who performed a routine ‘That’s Entertainment’ from their forthcoming show.
The guest speaker for the evening was adventure travel writer and broadcast journalist Simon Parker, who delivered a fascinating and thought-provoking speech.
