Evesham Editorial 17th Aug, 2023   0

A LEADING Midlands college group is celebrating a stellar set of BTEC, A-Level City and Guilds Technical results as it continues to develop skilled individuals to support the modern economy.

College group WCG received A-Level, BTEC and City and Guilds qualification results for learners across its six colleges, including those in Evesham and Pershore.

A third of all BTEC students achieved the top-grade, triple Distinction, with more than half the students gaining the top grades in animal management and equine.

More than one-third of students also gained triple Distinction of above in agriculture and construction.

The college group has also celebrated a 100 per cent completion rate for Level 3 City and Guilds Technical qualifications, with qualifications including plumbing, beauty therapy and floristry.

City and Guilds Technical qualifications have been delivered from Moreton Morrell College and Royal Leamington Spa College.

Students receiving their results have completed courses in key areas which mean they can immediately have a positive impact on the workforce, including agriculture, animal welfare, computing, engineering, construction, health and social care, plumbing and many more.

Simon Philpott, WCG Assistant Principal, said: “This is yet another year of strong BTEC and City and Guilds Technical results across our college group, with qualifications being secured across all of our colleges in Warwickshire and Worcestershire.

“Skilled individuals are at the heart of the UK government’s strategy and our courses are designed to meet the skills needs of the communities in which our colleges are based.

“Students will now move on to the next stage in journey – which could be University or employment – and the results received today will give them a great platform to launch their future careers.”

James Stacey, Head of A-Levels at WCG, added: “We would like to congratulate all of our students on their A-Level results this year – they are the results of two years of hard work and dedication.

“These A-Level qualifications will provide a springboard for the next stage in their development, whether that is Higher Education, apprenticeships or employment.”

WCG provides help and advice for all students, whatever their grades and is able to offer guidance on all of the options available to students receiving their results.
