Hardy Signs supported the student awards ceremony and Nik Hardy handed out the Entrepreneurial Award to one of the best students of the academic year in 2018.

Burton and South Derbyshire College – BSDC Students Awards – held its Further Education and Apprenticeship Awards on Wednesday 27th June at Pirelli Stadium. Outstanding students, their families and guests celebrated the exceptional skills and qualifications achieved in the past academic year. Hard work and dedication to studies were recognised, along with talent, success and achievement across many vocational areas.

                      

The award categories were based around the College’s Skills Promise, BSDC Students Awards: a variety of skills and qualities that students gain in addition to their qualification that will give them a head start in their career and make them stand out when applying for jobs. The Skills Promise encompasses the range of skills that employers are looking for, from creative thinking, being a team player and showing resilience, to being a good communicator, being good at solving problems and showing initiative.

The ceremony was presented by compère, Mark O’Sullivan from Touch FM, and a range of local businesses supported the awards evening, including The Hilton at St. George’s Park, Burton Albion Football Club, Hardy Signs, The Winery, South Derbyshire District Council, Special Orthotic Services, Burton and District Chamber of Commerce, Reabrook, Active Informatics, IG Masonry Support and Hi-Tech Engineering.
