Five Bridgwater College students honoured in dairy awards
FIVE Bridgwater College students took honours in the Somerset Dairy Careers Awards.
The awards celebrate the work of young people and employers in Somerset’s dairy industry which, along with the dairy industry nationally, is currently facing a skills gap.
The students, both past and present, either won or came runner up in the six award categories and were presented with cash prizes and trophies.
Alice Hannon, 21, from Wellington, who studies the Foundation Degree in Applied Animal Management, won the Dairy Processing Trainee Award.
Matthew Woollaston, 20, from Wiviliscombe, who is going on to study the Foundation Degree in Agricultural Business Management, won the Further and Higher Education Award.
Mollie Goodall, 18, from Burnham, who studied the Level 3 Extended BTEC Diploma in Agriculture, came runner up in both the Agricultural Dairy Trainee Award and the Further and Higher Education Award.
Nicola Bishop, 22, from Honiton, who studies the Foundation Degree in Agricultural Management, came runner up in the Further and Higher Education Award.
Aaron Debathe, 21, from Bridgwater, who studied the Level 2 Diploma in Work-based Agriculture, came runner up in the Agricultural Dairy Trainee Award.
Jeremy Kerswell, Head of land-based, sports and services said: “What is particularly pleasing is that they’re all at different stages of their education and development but are all worthy winners in their own right and a credit to the College.”
