Achievement Day Showcases Learner Success

Learners at Preston’s College celebrated their final day of the 2017/18 academic year in style at its annual Achievement Day celebration.

The day recognises learners’ outstanding achievements throughout the year, including cross-curricular award ceremonies to celebrate those who have gone above and beyond during their studies.

The Eric Wright Learning Foundation were also in attendance to sponsor awards for construction learners while contact centre specialist HGS were recruiting learners for a range of summer vacancies.

The College also hosted various activities on the student high street to help fundraise for national charity ‘Headway’, who aim to improve the lives of those who have suffered a brain injury.

Activities included foot darts, mini golf, basketball, table tennis and giant operation, allowing the learners to create a memorable last day alongside their tutors and classmates.

The mayor of Preston, Councillor Trevor Hart, also attended the event to celebrate the achievements of the city’s young people.

Talking about the day, Councillor Hart, said: “I’m very delighted to be part of this memorable day for Preston’s College learners.

“I’m overjoyed they are taking the opportunity to celebrate their own accomplishments whilst raising awareness and fundraising for an important charity alongside enjoying the day’s festivities.”

Debbie Ireland, head of curriculum at Preston’s College, added: “Achievement Day is an annual event held to celebrate the impressive achievements made by learners throughout the academic year.

“It provides learners with the opportunity to enjoy the time they have left together before moving on to University, employment or returning to the College for further or higher education study in September.”
