Outstanding students honoured at Student Awards Celebration Evening
Wednesday, 12 June 2013
Seevic College celebrated the outstanding achievement and commitment of its Vocational, Adult and Higher Education learners at an Awards Ceremony held on Tuesday 4 June.
The Student Awards Celebration Evening was a fantastic night of celebration for students, their families, and College staff - with a total of 35 Awards handed out.
Awards were presented for a variety of achievements, including academic excellence and honouring those students who have shown outstanding determination to achieve success.
Principal Nick Spenceley, who presented each student with their Award on the night, said: “This evening was a reminder of the high expectations we set for all our students - whether they are following a vocational or an academic pathway.

“I was particularly impressed by the desire to succeed shown by each of our Award winners; I know they will go on to have every success in the future as they progress in to Higher Education or employment.”
One of the Award winners on the night was 19-year-old Kelsey Adams, who picked up Most Improved Learner for the Business Administration Vocational curriculum area.
Kelsey, who previously attended Appleton School in Benfleet, said: “It felt really good when I was told by my Tutors that they had nominated me for this Award – it’s really helped increase my confidence.”
On the night the College also welcomed Cllr Maryse Iles, Mayor of Castle Point, as a special guest.
Afterwards, Cllr Iles said: “It was wonderful to be able to meet some of the outstanding young talent that we have here in Castle Point, and I was particularly struck by how polite and mature the students were.
"They are a credit not only to their parents, but the whole education system here in the Borough. I think it’s fantastic that the College organises events like this, to reward and recognise the success of local young people.”
The Student Awards Celebration Evening coincided with national VQ Day, which took place on Thursday 5 June and aims to raise awareness and recognition of Vocational qualifications.
Seevic College offers a wide range of Vocational qualifications – in addition to A-Levels, Professional Qualifications, Higher Education and Apprenticeships.
