North Devon Student Awards

Petroc celebrates student success at our North Devon campus!

On 25 May we were delighted to welcome our North Devon award-winning learners to the Barnstaple Hotel for our awards evening. 

Petroc awarded a select group of students with our prestigious Student Achievement Awards. These awards are put forward by the learners’ subject lecturers and recognise the student’s hard work, dedication and achievements over the last 12 months – both inside and outside the classroom. 

Principal and CEO Sean Mackney, who opened our awards evening said: “Being able to celebrate the many successes and achievements of our learners at this annual event is a highlight of the year. It really shows that Petroc learners go on to achieve fantastic things. It is what makes working in college so special. It is also great to see those learners recognise the staff who really went further to inspire, support and engage them, and the employers that deserve a special mention for their work with Petroc to prepare the next generation of skilled employees who will work in our community. Well done all. It makes me very proud to be Petroc.”

Vice Principal of People, Organisational Development & Engagement, Sheena Murphy-Collett said: “The Student Awards are a culmination of the hard work and dedication of our learners and college staff, and I always feel so proud to share the event where they celebrate this!”

Our guest speaker, Peter Morrish made a very inspiring speech to our award winners. He said about the night, “It was an honour and truly humbling experience to be a guest speaker tonight. These exceptional students are destined to be inspiring community members and leaders, driving mid and north Devon forward. Keep striving for excellence; the sky’s the limit!”
