Students and staff at Harrogate College celebrated their success at a Further Education Awards ceremony.
The Royal Hall hosted the evening which featured entertainment from performing arts students, videos of award winners, and speeches by student ambassadors and specially invited VIPs.
Opened by College principal Debra Forsythe-Conroy, the awards collected included students of the year, special achievement, and gold awards for students who had completed their progression passport - a record of industry-relevant experience - to the highest standard in all areas.
Ms Forsythe-Conroy said: “Our annual Further Education Awards are always a truly wonderful night of celebration, where we have the opportunity to recognise the commitment, hard work and achievements of our learners.
“We were privileged to welcome a number of guests from the community, including VIPs, as well as students’ friends and family. The atmosphere was fantastic and a valuable reminder of the committed, hard-working and diverse student body we have at Harrogate College.”
The ceremony was closed by chief executive of Hull College Group Gary Warke. Harrogate College is a member of this group of schools.
Students recognised included those who overcame difficulties in their education, adults returning to education, and young learners.
Ms Forsythe-Conroy said: “I once again extend my congratulations to all students involved.
“Their passion for learning is what motivates those of us who work in education and makes our jobs so rewarding.”
