Several local employees supported the event by sponsoring categories such as the BMW Engineering Award, DRAX STEM Award, Croda Innovation Award and the Goole Times 14-16 Award.
Further categories included the 100% attendance certificates, Maths and English awards, 16-18 award, 19+ Award presented by Caron Wright Principal, and for the first time, the Community Pride Award and the Lauren Stevenson Award.
Many of the college students have successfully gained places at prestigious universities such as Leeds, York and Hull. At Goole College there is always something for everyone from Foundation Studies to Foundation Degrees. The college is proud of its warm and friendly atmosphere and prides itself on its excellent customer service.
Caron Wright, Principal of Goole College said, “It was inspiring to see so many of our students achieving their educational ambitions. I’d like to also extend my thanks to the parents, carers, friends and community members who joined us for the celebration.”
“The event was a wonderful opportunity to honour the innovation and excellence of our students. It is so important to us to have the opportunity to acknowledge their hard work and commitment and to congratulate them all on their qualifications.”
“This awards ceremony is now a much anticipated event in the Goole College calendar, and it is always a great opportunity for colleagues across the Group to come together in celebration. The awards are a reflection of our shared mission to enable excellent learning for employability and social fulfilment.”
“Congratulations to all of our students, and I wish them every success for the future.”
