NATIONAL Certificate students at Angus College were celebrating their achievements last week in a series of awards ceremonies which spanned two days.

The students who particularly excelled within their areas of study were commended for their hard work and received special awards to mark their achievement.

Around 75 students walked the Angus Conference centre stage to receive their certificates in front of a packed auditorium.

Students from every curriculum area were in attendance with awards being given in subjects ranging from land-based studies and art and design to engineering and computing.

Family, friends and course tutors packed the conference centre as they turned out to show their support for the winners.

Among the award winners was apprentice brick layer Ian Rose, Carnoustie, who celebrated taking not one but two titles: The Travis Perkins Award for the Best Bricklaying Apprentice and The Scottish Building Award for the Best Construction Apprentice.

The accolades add to Ian’s run of recent titles which also includes first place new entrant in bricklaying at the recent ConstructionSkills SkillBuild competition.

Angus College director of learning and teaching, Barbara Nelson said: “One of the best parts of my job is celebrating the achievement of the many students who choose to come to Angus College every year and who go on to receive awards.

“Learners at Angus enjoy excellent facilities, and learning experiences which equip and motivate them to move on in their lives to employment or further educational opportunities.”
