Goodbye and good luck to our leavers

The dust has finally settled after students and their families came together to celebrate and cheer at our 2022 Leavers’ Award Ceremonies. Held at our sites in Ullenwood, Hereford and Wales, the events were a wonderful opportunity to recognise the achievements of all of our leavers during their time at college, from improving their communication and choice-making to developing the confidence to try new things and learning skills for employment.

Memories were certainly made for all of the students involved and their families. Congratulations to our award winners who were:
