VQ Winners 2012

25th June 2012 <b>VQ</b> Winners 2012

This year’s Vocational Qualifications awards evening took place at the Victoria Theatre in front of an audience of over 400. The event is the College's annual awards ceremony to recognise student achievement.

This year record numbers of students were nominated by tutors in a number of categories including most improved learner, apprentice of the year, significant contribution to College, enterprising learner and VQ hero of the year.

The special guest for the evening was ex-student Rebecca Bridger, who has just graduated from Loughborough University. Rebecca, who sits on the National Executive Council of the NUS, gave a truly inspirational experience about the positive impact she had whilst learning at Calderdale College and how it has helped her and guided her since.

Current Calderdale College Student Union Executive members Chloe Carter and Nathan Hoyle were the comperes for the evening and did it with some style and humour!
