Bournville College celebrated the achievements and determination of their students at an awards ceremony last week.
The evening, which took place in the Longbridge based college’s conference centre, was hosted by former Central News presenter Llewela Bailey, who sits on the board of governors.
Guests enjoyed a three course meal, prepared and served by college students, who were thanked by Llewela.
The event was sponsored by a number of organisations such as Marks & Spencer, University College Birmingham, European Corporate Wellbeing, Staffordshire University, B31 Voices and WERK and showcased the talent that’s grown and nurtured at Bournville College each year.
Craig Stanley, winner of the Apprentice of the Year Award and Principal’s Award said: “I am blown away by the recognition I received. I didn’t expect to win an award, let alone two. I am grateful to my colleagues in the Learning Zone at Bournville College where I work for believing in me. Thanks to their support, I have grown personally and professionally and now I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds.”
Sarinder Singh, Librarian at Bournville College who made the winning nomination commented: “Craig has made huge advances personally and professionally despite his specific learning needs. He joined the college on a work experience programme, progressing on to an apprenticeship, becoming a Learning Zone Receptionist at Bournville College. He is one of the best workers the Learning Zone has had. He has a great work ethic and is highly professional in his behaviour.”
Ian Richards, Chair of Corporation at Bournville College summed up: “Well done to all award winners on your outstanding achievements and remarkable personal growth. I have no doubt that every one of you will excel in your future roles and contribute to the well-being of our society. Be proud of what you’ve achieved because you are our pride and joy.”
