Cheshire College – South & West hosted a spectacular awards evening at its Crewe Campus, welcoming staff, student nominees and their families to the impressive ceremony.
The Student Awards are an annual tradition at Cheshire College, providing an opportunity to celebrate the hard work, determination and successes of students across a broad range of qualification types and subject areas.
Guests were treated to canapés, live performances by the student band Rouge, and a video presentation about student life at Cheshire College. Stuart Pollitt, Co-Founder and Director of Restless Films, and a close collaborator of Cheshire College, acted as the Compère for the evening, presenting students with their environmentally friendly awards.
This year’s event also recognised the Colleges’ T Level Student of the Year as the first cohort are nearing completion of the brand new 2-year technical qualifications introduced in 2020.
Cheshire College was one of the first select few Further Education Colleges in Cheshire to have been selected by the Government to offer T Levels, an alternative to A Levels that combines classroom study with subject-specific work placements.
When asked how it felt to have been nominated for her award, T Level student Jess Cope, winner of the Childcare and Education Student of the Year Award said: “I feel really proud, and I’m so happy to be here tonight.”
Many of the nominees have exciting plans for their futures, including Level 3 Business student Amir Narimanuly, winner of the Full-Time International Student of the Year Award, who said: “I’ve loved studying here in the UK and I’m hoping to go to the University of Cardiff to study International Relations after leaving Cheshire College.”
Jasbir Dhesi OBE, Principal and CEO of Cheshire College commented: “The standard of this year’s Student Awards nominees has been exceptional, and we are absolutely thrilled for the students’ success.
Every year, we are incredibly proud to celebrate the fantastic students who help to make Cheshire College so special.”
The next Student Awards ceremony will be hosted at the College’s Ellesmere Port Campus on Thursday 15th June.
Cheshire College are now accepting applications for September 2023 for those interested in studying a diverse range of subjects, designed to provide students with combined skills and knowledge that will fully prepare them for the next exciting stage of their life.
