We are delighted with the progress this year’s Access students have made. They are a talented and hard-working group who have realised their significant potential. Sally Kent- Collyer’s Adult Education Manager
Successful Access students enjoyed their graduation at Collyer’s this week, receiving their certificates from Deputy Principal Steve Martell. Many of this year’s students are now moving on to degree courses having achieved the qualification.
Collyer’s Adult Education Manager, Sally Kent, who also teaches on the course, was thrilled: “We are delighted with the progress this year’s Access students have made. They are a talented and hard-working group who have realised their significant potential.”
Access courses provide the necessary qualifications for entry to university degrees, and the college offers courses including Nursing and Healthcare Professions (including midwifery) and Health and Social Care Professions.
After presenting the certificates at the Access Graduation in Duckering Hall, Steve Martell, said: “In addition to their friends and families, all at Collyer’s are extremely proud of these students. They have demonstrated academic and practical ability, juggled study with other significant commitments and worked incredibly hard.
“Huge thanks to Sally Kent and their teachers Jess Smart and Dominic Martin for helping these students to excel this year.”
In addition to achieving the Access qualification, Nicola Waters, Kayleigh Pearson, Ella Barker, and Betsie Standing have been nominated for the prestigious National Laser Access Awards, which will be announced in the autumn term.
Sally Kent added: “Well done to these talented students and colossal thanks to their supporters. I’m confident that these learners will all be a credit to any degree programme in the future.”
