The V6 Students’ Awards Dinner 2017

Walsall College held its prestigious V6 Awards Dinner on Tuesday 4th July, to celebrate the success and achievements of the college’s V6 students and apprentices.

During the evening, 22 outstanding students were presented with Student of the Year Awards for achieving excellence in their area of study, along with an additional award for overall V6 Student of the Year, which went to Engineering Apprentice Adam Whitehouse who is employed by Perkins Engines.

18-year-old Adam was commended by his college assessor for the high standards he demonstrated during his theory and practical unit assessments, and by his employer for his exemplary attitude to his work.

The awards ceremony also included a pre-drinks reception at the college’s Littleton Restaurant and a four-course meal.

Guest speaker for the evening was Samuel Piri, Director of ‘Inspire to Aspire’, and the nationally acclaimed events company behind the human body based dissection experience Anatomy Lab LIVE.

Samuel delivered an inspirational speech that highlighted how the aspirations of young people were limited due to the lack of exposure to the fantastic and inspirational outcomes that Higher Education can offer.

Walsall College’s V6 is a sixth form with a difference, providing students with the vocational training to become Walsall College Graduates; skilled, professional and enterprising.

Jatinder Sharma OBE, Principal and Chief Executive of Walsall College said: “The V6 Awards Dinner was an ideal opportunity for Walsall College to celebrate the fantastic achievements our students have achieved on vocational courses. These exceptional students are real life examples of students who have excelled through vocational learning and are a real inspiration to others.”
