The annual event celebrates the success of students from all across the college and is held at Worcester Guildhall. In total there were over 70 different awards covering all departments of the College.
We were contacted by the college as being recognised as a local business, and asked if we would like to sponsor two students as they receive their awards. We jumped at the chance as a way to give back to the community, also having 3 apprentices that have joined ISO Quality Services Limited through the college, we wanted to support them in every way possible.
The students were nominated by their course tutors for outstanding achievements throughout the academic year with every student receiving a prize award which was funded by different sponsors.
Our sponsored students for the evening were Bonnie Mann & Jack Demynn.
Bonnie achieved – Level 3 Business Studies Student of the Year (unfortunately Bonnie couldn’t make the evening)
Jack achieved – Functional Skills Student of the Year Award
Before the awards evening started, we were able to network with other sponsors, where we bumped into Alan Burton from Nexus Creative and we could see the excited, but nervous students who were minutes away from receiving their awards!

All of the students were gathered and taken to the upstairs main hall of the Worcester Guildhall to be seated. Whilst they anxiously awaited above, the sponsors of the evening and the proud parents were led up the stairs to take their seats for the evening to begin.
We were in the company of 2 fantastic speakers for the evening, CEO for local charity WoundCare4Heros, Clare Stephens and local entrepreneur and founder of Muddy Boots Food Miranda Ballard. The theme for the evening was hero’s, and what a great subject that made, first hearing from the 2 brilliant speakers, who’s presentations really made you stop, think and listen, and then the turn of the students…..
As we sat through the large number of students who were there to accept there awards, we knew immediately we were surrounded by remarkable, talented people, who are set to make great career choices. Jack was the last student in the first sitting of the evening (their were a lot of students receiving their awards). Sitting there listening to how much these students achieve every day is extraordinary and we appreciate the college for letting us be a part of their magical award evening.

Well done Jack and Bonnie – You have a great future ahead of you, Good Luck!
Jennifer Appleton, Operations Director commented ‘As a local business we are extremely keen to forge relationships with local education partners – we enjoy an excellent relationship with Worcester College of Technology (having recruited 3 apprentices from them in the last 6 months) and therefore jumped at the opportunity to support them and the students at this prestigious awards ceremony.’
