Fabulous Evening for Service Users at Belfast Metropolitan College Annual Skills and Apprenticeship Awards

Friday 29 June 2018

Awards Aplenty

Robin Hamilton recently (SES project officer) attended Belfast Metropolitan College (BMC) annual Skills and Apprenticeship Awards. Springvale Campus provided the setting for the event. The aim? Recognising students for their hard work and achievements throughout the year. Furthermore, providing special acknowledgement of placement providers for the part they play in supporting the journey young people into the working world. The evening was fantastic with parents and guardians beaming proud smiles as the young people collected their awards.

Cedar Support

The Cedar Foundation supports students on the Routeways project at BMC every week. The support includes practical classroom support with literacy and numeracy, 1 to 1 support to maintain work levels and mentoring support. Among the 48 nominated finalists a number of Routeways students were nominated by their tutors for their commitment and hard work both academically and at work placement. The great achievement of becoming a finalist saw four Routeways students stepping up to receive the top awards in their category.

Sponsors, Smiles and Selfies!

City and Guilds and Fujitsu sponsored the event and were recognised for their contribution. City and Guilds took the opportunity to commend the students on their hard work and presented the beautiful Gold Medal of Excellence to one TfS student. Each year, they award around 200 medals to the most outstanding across the world - this equates to one in 8,000 students highlighting the significance of the presentation. Proud relatives and friends took plenty of photos and many selfies were had to show off thewell-deserved awards. A big well done to all those who made it to the finals and to the winners.
