The College’s top-performing students were recognised at a glittering awards evening. The College's 26th annual Celebration of Achievement awards ceremony hosted here at the College on Thursday, November 21st, with a total of 43 students being nominated and 21 overall award winners as well as celebrating 50 years of providing education and training to Hartlepool at our Stockton Street campus.
The main award of the evening, Student of the Year 2019, went to Gemma McIver, who earlier in the evening also scooped the Access to HE Student of the Year Award. The double-award winning Gemma was recognised for her outstanding academic and practical performance. She achieved the Access to Health programme with a distinction grade profile on the back of an outstanding attendance record. She has now progressed to Teesside University to follow an Adult Nursing degree.
For the first time, the COA audience were treated to a performance by our new Performing Arts students, who sang two songs to great applause and appreciation.
