College students celebrate BTEC joy

Rob George 12th Aug, 2021

STUDENTS across a leading group of colleges in Evesham and Pershore are celebrating their BTEC results.

College group WCG has seen students opening results at both Evesham College and Pershore College.

Robyn Creed has heaped praise on her tutors at Evesham College after getting a triple Distinction* grades in her BTEC Extended Diploma in Graphic Design with Photography Level 3.

The 21-year-old, who lives in the town, will be going on to study Graphic Design at Falmouth University, which specialises in courses within the creative industries.

“The tutors have been so supportive, probably even more so because of the challenges around Covid. They really were the best!

“It’s been a challenging course and the pandemic aside, the biggest challenge was the stress of the final-year project, but I’ve loved every minute of it, it’s been a great experience.”

Pershore College student Chloe Bradley got three Distinction* grades in her BTEC Extended Diploma in Animal Management Level 3, and will now study Animal Biology at Nottingham Trent University.

“I didn’t expect my results to be so good, it’s an amazing feeling,” said the 19-year-old from Kidderminster.

“The support of tutors and still being able to complete my work experience as part of my course despite the pandemic have both been really key to my results, and I can’t wait to continue my studies at University.”

Tears of joy were shed by Hannah Gill after opening her results and finding she has three Distinction* grades in her BTEC Extended Diploma in Animal Management Level 3.

The 18-year-old has been combining her studies with a full-time job at Shepherds Veterinary Centre in Kidderminster where she lives.

“I wasn’t expecting them to be what they are, so when I opened them I cried. I was really relieved as it has been a really hard two years trying to balance work with studying.

“All the teachers were absolutely lovely and really supportive, and the facilities at Pershore College are really good.

“I’ll be continuing to work towards qualifying fully as a veterinary nurse while working full-time, and my ambition is to start my own business. A lot of my inspiration comes from having seven animals myself. I’ve rescued them all and that is what I want to do in the future.”
