19 outstanding learners, staff, partners and community groups will be presented with award trophies by The Worshipful the Mayor Cllr Sally Carr in recognition of their hard work, determination and commitment to learning; be it fantastic exam results, personal achievements or continuing to learn during difficult times. The College also recognises the important hard work and dedication of staff in helping students achieve their full potential.
Ben Sparrow SACC’s 2011/12 Apprentice of the Year said: “I am honoured that the college holds me in high enough regard to give me this award, when I take into account the other apprentices I have spent time with over the past year or so. Completing an apprenticeship is, in itself, a great achievement, and the qualifications that go with that will help me with my future career. To complete the apprenticeship with this recognition, however, is in a different league, and I am very grateful to the college, and also the tutors and peers with which I have worked”.
Principal Stephen Lay said: “Events like this are an important part of College life; they celebrate success, raise the college’s profile in the local community and show case good practice. Hopefully others will be inspired to take up further learning or training through hearing about the success of the award winners. In these tough economic times it is heartening to see that our learners have not let this get in their way; in fact it has made them more determined to succeed in their chosen courses. They should all be very proud of what they have achieved”.
SACC’s panel of Governors were responsible for the very tough decision of deciding the winners for each category.
