11:00am Sunday 25th August 2013 in News
HARD work and outstanding academic and vocational accomplishments were all recognised as Sparsholt College celebrated the achievements of 730 advanced, further and higher education students.
With families, friends and lecturers proudly looking on, Winchester Cathedral provided the backdrop to the Presentation of Awards ceremony.
Higher education students from Andover College joined their Sparsholt contemporaries to collect their awards.
During principal Tim Jackson’s address he said: “The past academic year has been another highly successful one for the college.
“Over 2,000 qualifications have been awarded, with 730 of these being presented to Level 3 further education, foundation degree and BSc Honours students at today’s two ceremonies.
“Many of our students are already in employment, often hundreds of miles from Winchester and many overseas.
“I thought it was worth remarking that there are more than 30 of the courses today with a 100 per cent pass rate, which says a great deal about the combined effort of students and their tutors.”
Guest of honour was Andy Westwood, fromGuildHE, one of two recognised representative bodies for higher education in the UK. He told the graduates: “Your hard work and your commitment is really impressive.”
