Ryan wins another award...

For those that have been following the progress of IOW Apprentice Ryan Kimber, we are delighted to announce that he has won yet another award, this time picking up the "Adult Student of the Year" award.

Following on from his success earlier this year when Ryan, who studied engineering at Cecamm was awarded the BTEC Engineering Student of the Year Award, he was nominated for the AoC Student of the Year award and beat Roxanne Willoughby, from the Northern College and Malcolm Thwala, from Hugh Baird College, to win the award.

He achieved D*D*D* in his Extended Diploma Engineering Level 3 BTEC after being diagnosed with brain and spinal cancer in 2016.

Kimber was headhunted by GKN Aerospace to design a project for their craft apprentices as a result of successful work placements. He also volunteers for CLIC Sargent.

The college’s chair, Nicholas England, said: “It has been a privilege to see how much this young man has developed during his time at the college.”

Once again, congratulations to Ryan on yet another great accolade.
