The winners of this year’s Association of Colleges’ Student of the Year Awards have been revealed.
Five learners from across the country have been recognised for their “fantastic work at their respective colleges and local communities” at the association’s virtual CollegesLive event, which has been held today.
AoC president Sally Dicketts said the level of applications to the awards is “extremely high” each year, which “goes to show the fantastic work students are doing in colleges, as well as the lengths colleges go to support their students”.
“It is particularly amazing to see the achievements in such a turbulent year and everyone has done amazingly well and should be extremely proud.”
