The Further Education and Apprenticeship Awards, organized by Burton and South Derbyshire College, are an opportunity for outstanding students, their families and their guests to celebrate the exceptional skills and qualifications achieved in the past academic year.
This year there were over fifty learners attending with their families as well as twelve businesses, college staff, fellows and governors. The awards are based on the College’s Skills Promise, which ensures that when students complete their course, they will not only have an industry recognised qualification, but they’ll be job ready with the transferable skills needed to make an impact in their chosen industry or profession. Swift-Cut were absolutely honoured to be given the opportunity to support current BSDC learners.
