Skills Academy Award Ceremony
Fareham College recently held its in-house Skills Academy Award ceremony, where 50 students, aged 16, were given their Level 1 qualification. They were all awarded by Gill Sommers, Director of the Students and Recruitment Department, with outstanding achievers also receiving a special certificate and an Amazon voucher, as a recognition of their hard work.
All these young students have been at Fareham College once a week for the last two years as part of the Skills Academy, a programme that offers year 10 students the chance to learn new skills and get ready for their future jobs.
The courses they were taking are all vocational – Motor Vehicle, Photography, Construction, Childcare, Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy, Catering and Engineering – and two thirds of these students are coming back to Fareham College in September.
The Skills Academy Award ceremony represented the opportunity for the College to celebrate the success of these young students, boosting their self-confidence just before the GCSE exams. It showed how proud the College is of them and how great it was to work with them in these two years, seeing them grow and become confident young persons. Everyone here is looking forward to their future successes.
