Students celebrate outstanding results

Students from the Access Course at Lancaster and Morecambe College celebrated their amazing success and were presented with their diplomas by Phil Wilkinson, Chief Executive of Ascentis.

Around 30 students with their friends and family attended the evening hosted in Lancaster and Morecambe College’s Roeburn Suite, where they were delighted to receive their official award certificates in recognition of their achievement on the course. The Access course is aimed solely at adult students over the age of 19 and offers them a chance to return to study later in life. Mark Everard, a student on the ‘Pathway to University’ course commented: ‘The Access course was really the only way I could get into university after being out of education. I am very grateful for the opportunity, I do feel like it’s my last chance, it’s a lifeline really.’

The Chief Executive of Ascentis took the time to come and personally award these certificates to the great pleasure of the students receiving them. During his speech Phil Wilkinson commented on the variety of destinations the students were progressing on to including Nursing, Social Work, Journalism, Advertising and Japanese and the challenges faced by mature students returning to study.  Sheila Henderson, the course manager also said a few words praising the students for their hard work and determination and thanking Ascentis for their support over the years and the great working relationship they have built with the Access course at Lancaster and Morecambe College.
