Heading off to University to study Midwifery and Forensic Investigation are outstanding Shrewsbury College students, Taylor Griffiths and Bryony Potter (18).
They are amongst an impressive group of 37 Level 3 students at the College who this year achieved triple distinction/stars in their Level 3 Diplomas – the equivalent of three A*s at A Level.
“We both studied the BTEC Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care which was a brilliant course,” say Bryony and Taylor. “We had good GCSEs and knew we wanted to pursue science-related careers, we also knew that a practical course was a more attractive option for us than exam-based A Levels.”
“The College also supports you to get some really relevant work experience, which is highly valued by universities” Taylor adds. “I even got a placement in Tanzania, which was incredible.”
“These are very impressive results. They reflect the ability and excellent attitude of our vocational students and are testament to the quality of teaching and support they receive,” says Principal and CEO of the Shrewsbury Colleges Group, Lyn Surgeon.
Enrolments for this academic year can still be taken on a number of the courses offered at Shrewsbury College. For details visit www.shrewsbury.ac.uk or call 01743 342333.
