Over the past few weeks Burnley College Students and Alumni have been awarded a number of prizes for their outstanding achievements.
Presentation evenings were recently held for a range of departments within Burnley College to show just how well students have been achieving over the past 12 months. Each evening was also a chance for students' families and friends to see them be rewarded for their hard work and to learn a bit more about what each course entails.
Health and Social Development
hosted an awards evening to celebrate the high levels of achievement within their department. Giving out awards for excellent and outstanding grades, Students were also awarded recognition prizes to commend them for taking part in extra-curricular activities.
The biggest awards ceremonies held over August were the Burnley College Awards for Excellence and the Themis Inspire and Achieve awards, both of which were held in stunning surroundings in the college atrium which was totally unrecognisable thanks to some very special interior decorating! These ceremonies were the perfect opportunity to formally celebrate the achievements of graduating, alumni and continuing students, each of whom had worked extremely hard over the past 12 months to gain exceptional grades and work experience.
Both of these events have full Facebook photo albums to browse through, please click the following links to see more:

Also presented with awards for outstanding achievement were students of the Construction department, who celebrated a year of high achievement in a range of new and constantly developing subjects. Students are challenged every day within the department to work to industry standards of work, review and health and safety and a number of high achievers walked away from the event with awards in more than one area. Congratulations to all who were involved.
A Level Students celebrated their own night of awards and achievement, showcasing some of the hard work each student has put in over the past year. From high achievements in Creative Arts and Media as seen throughout the "Show Off" and art exhibitions to outstanding grades in Sciences, English and Mathematics, the evening was full of proud students, parents and tutors alike.
Creative Arts and Media hosted an evening of recognition for their students' amazing work too, with prizes for outstanding grades, fantastic art works and performances and dedication to the subject. Students were presented with their awards in a special ceremony which also recognised the hard work and high standard of work produced by performing arts and dance students.
Also celebrating a host of excellent grades this year was the Sports and Public Services department whose students were presented with awards back in June commending them on 12 months of hard work and high achievement. Many students from the department have now left College with their outstanding grades to follow careers in public services; these awards showcased just how determined some were to achieving their goals.
A huge well done to all our students for the amazing work they've accomplished in 2013/2014. Let's get ready for a fantastic 2014/2015...are you as excited as we are?
