Further Education students celebrate success!

Writtle University College’s Further Education students have collected their certificates and celebrated their achievements!

Three ceremonies were held at All Saints Church, Writtle, on Friday 22 June to present the awards to the Agriculture, Art & Design, Floristry, Horticulture, Sport, Animal Studies and Equine students.

International students on the Floristry degree were also given their awards as an early graduation ceremony before they head home.

Vice-Chancellor of Writtle University College Professor Tim Middleton congratulated students on their achievements in a year that saw the University College again rated as ‘good’ by Ofsted. There has also been a 20% rise in acceptances onto Further Education courses starting in September.

As well as their academic achievements, Further Education students have benefitted from visits to trade shows, inspirational workshops, and visiting speakers, as well as enjoying individual and team success in competitions.

They have fundraised more than £3,000 for a range of charities, including Cancer Research UK, World Horse Welfare, Remus Horse Sanctuary, vet charity PDSA, Linton Zoo, the Royal British Legion and CHESS Homeless, Chelmsford.

Professor Middleton said: “Progressing through education requires focus and determination and we congratulate our students on completing their studies and for all of their achievements during their time at Writtle.

“The staff of Writtle University College are proud to have been a part of their development. We are dedicated to supporting students through their educational journey and we will all take great pride in the achievements of our students – today and in the future.”

Writtle University College Founding Chancellor Anne Jenkin, Baroness of Kennington, was the special guest and gave an inspirational address.

Giving a positive picture of the world in terms of employment levels, child mortality and access to technology, she gave students three tips for the future: “Shake people firmly by the hand, look them directly in the eye and ask lots of people, particularly those who you admire, for advice.”
