Elland Hill - Level 3 Fashion
Elland hadn’t had a good time at school, but at college she really found her calling. She did well in all her units achieving a D*D*D and she also won the BTEC Art and Design student of the year, which was a real accolade to not only her but her tutor too.
Elland is now a scholarship student studying a BA Hons in Fashion Design at Northumberland University
BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care
Student Jade Hogg aged 18 from Driffield won the Ken Whyborn Recognition Award, awarded to a student who has overcome significant challenges to successfully complete their course and achieve in their chosen field.
Jade supported herself financially throughout her course, holding down three part time jobs whilst also studying full time. Through sheer hard work and determination Jade achieved top grades and worked hard to gain her GCSE English Language, which she needed in order to pursue her chosen career path. Jade, who has dyslexia, never thought she would be able to go to university, but has recently accepted a place to study social work at Sheffield Hallam University.
Jade said “I’m proud of myself and I feel the award is recognising all my hard work. I’d like to thank Ken for creating the award and my tutor Bev Felgate, for nominating me and always believing in me and supporting me.”
Apprentice Cameron Willers aged 17 from Gransmoor was chosen to receive a bursary for carpentry from the Gordon Leason Carpentry Apprenticeship Scholarship Fund, awarded by the Rotary Club of Driffield. The Trust was created in memory of Mr Gordon Leason to help trainee carpenters in the local area. The £500 annual prize is intended to help students buy their first tools of the trade.
Cameron, who is an Apprentice Joiner at Eddy Willers Home Improvements and attends the College’s Bridlington campus was a worthy winner.
He said, “It was a total surprise and I’m delighted to have been awarded the bursary from the Rotary Club in Mr. Leason’s name. It will be great to know I can get what I need to help with learning my trade without having to worry.”
Alex Sheldon, head of curriculum for construction and engineering at the College said, “Cameron is a deserving recipient of the bursary as he has worked hard ever since he started with us. He has a 100% attendance record and shows serious commitment to his studies – right down to his attitude and punctuality.”
