Bridgwater & Taunton College | Celebrating Student Success

Held by Bridgwater & Taunton College (BTC) biannually, the Value Added Awards provide an excellent opportunity for students to be nominated by their tutors to be recognised, honoured and congratulated for their contribution to the College.

The awards acknowledge remarkable accomplishments amongst students across various areas of the College’s Further Education (FE) provision. These achievements encompass overcoming challenges throughout their educational journey, celebrating stories that demonstrate exceptional effort and embody the high standards of excellence promoted by BTC.

All students nominated for these awards have worked incredibly hard to maximise their potential, and each deserve to be applauded for their significant achievements. Through their exceptional determination, perseverance and positive attitudes, they have achieved a mixture of personal and academic goals. Nominating tutors were ecstatic for their students, commenting on how each were a pleasure to teach.

Louise Rowley, Vice Principal, hosted the award ceremony with each student being presented a certificate and pin badge in recognition of their hard work and efforts. Parents, carers, family and tutors of each student were invited to join the event, which was followed by a buffet lunch for all attendees.


Andy Berry, Principal and CEO, said,

These awards are an outstanding chance to not only show off the incredible attitudes from our students at BTC, but also to dedicate time to celebrate their individual achievements whilst overcoming their challenges. It is always a pleasure to be involved in acknowledging, celebrating and congratulating well deserving, successful students.


Louise Rowley, Vice Principal, said,

To see many of these students overcome challenges with their heads held high, surpassing their own expectations through support of peers, teachers and BTC, is a fantastic event to be part of. I couldn’t be prouder – they deserve to be celebrated.
