Lights shine bright on the FE awards

North Kent College proudly hosted their annual Further Education Awards Ceremony to honour nominated students on their successes and accomplishments throughout their studies. After being put forward for selection by their Curriculum Managers, the students and their guests were invited along to the evening celebration, held in the Osterberg Centre at the Dartford Campus. The nominations were given for a variety of reasons, from dedication to their studies, going above and beyond and overcoming personal struggles.

The awards were split into a range of categories including Curriculum Manager’s Awards, Assistant and Vice Principal’s Awards and Principal’s Awards. This year there was also a memorial award presented to the family of Jordan Dawes; a talented sports student who passed away during the academic year.

Each student was presented with their glass trophy, certificate and goodie bag containing items from some of the award sponsors that we would like to thank for supporting this event. The audience were told of why each individual had been awarded this prestigious recognition and many of the guests who attended spoke of how rewarding it was to hear about the achievements of each student. During a drinks and canapes reception, guests were serenaded to a live performance by NKC music students, whilst being given the opportunity to view student’s work and college achievements through displays around the hall.

Rhiannon Hughes, Deputy Principal Curriculum was thrilled with the results of the evening commenting, "Our annual FE Awards were a resounding success with so many of our talented and dedicated learners being rewarded for their endeavours by our equally talented and dedicated staff. Congratulations to all, as it was a wonderful way to round off another great year together”.
