Hereward students demonstrated their skills at Derwen College on Thursday (16th June) receiving three accolades in the regional round of the Inclusive Skills competition.

Hereward College entrants Shaun Bratt, James Roberts, Ciaran Bevan and Benjamin Pugh put on a great performance in the Entry Level 1 Table Laying and Entry Level 2 ICT categories achieving a first and two second places between them.

In Table Laying regional competition Ciaran Bevan was awarded second prize and Benjamin Pugh received a certificate of participation. In Word Processing and Functional Skills National competition, Shaun Bratt won first prize and James Roberts was presented with second place. Shaun and James will now attend the national finals at the NEC in November.

Inclusive skills competitions are supported by Natspec (National Association of Specialist Colleges) and take place at various colleges across the region during the summer term. These are an exciting and fun way to show off the skills students have learnt at college by taking part in fully supported competitions.

Hereward’s Learning and Teaching Developer Soroosh Yousefian said: “Our students displayed excellent personal and employability skills in the Natspec regional and national competitions this year and achieved great results in ICT, Table Laying, Media and Functional Skills. We are very proud of them all.”

Each competition category was judged by industry specialists, who were unanimous in their praise of the level of skill demonstrated by all competitors.
