On Thursday May 5th Year 11 students who have been following a range of courses at Cornwall College St Austell for the past two years were able to celebrate their achievements at a special ceremony for family and friends.

The evening event was held in the Keay Theatre and hosted by Debbie Wilshire Head of Cornwall College St Austell (and a Poltair governor). Students were awarded a certificate and a small gift by the College and the audience heard from each course tutor about the progress made by the students from nervous Year 10 pupils who started their courses in September 2009 to the confident young people they have now become at the course end in May 2011.

Poltair is proud to work in a consortium with the College and other local schools which is recognised nationally as an example of good practice in order to provide these excellent courses for its learners. This cohort has included Young Apprenticeship in Engineering, Young Apprenticeship in Construction, Level 2 Diploma in Hair and Beauty, Level 1 Salon Services, Level 1 in Building Craft Occupations. Special mention goes to two Poltair students: Jon Gibson was awarded Outstanding Achievement in Building Craft Occupations and Cherlyn Crocker was awarded Outstanding Achievement in Salon Services.

Well done to them and to all Year 11 students successfully completing these courses
