College students celebrate their achievements

Barnsley College (@barnsleycollege) has celebrated the achievements of its students from 2020/21 academic year.

All students at the College showed outstanding commitment and dedication to their studies throughout the past academic year, but 33 students went the extra mile. Those individuals were awarded a Certificate of Student Achievement for their outstanding accomplishments during a difficult year.

Certificates were issued to students from across the College’s course provision including vocational courses, apprenticeships, A Levels, T Levels, foundation learning and university-level programmes. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the students received their certificates by post.
