Twenty-one UTC Oxfordshire graduates received the Duke of York Gold Award for Technical Education from HRH The Duke of York, with 17 former students attending the prestigious ceremony at St James’s Palace on Monday 16 September.
The Duke of York Award for Technical Education acknowledges the success of young people choosing technical education and excelling at University Technical Colleges (UTCs).
The award recognises a combination of qualifications, work experience placements and the development of wider competencies required in the workplace such as communication skills and problem-solving. For many students it is their first step towards becoming registered technicians.
Nomination for the Duke of York Award for Technical Education is based on successfully completing a process of work experience placements, academic achievement and development of workplace skills together with a rigorous assessment interview.
Well done to our students for their achievements: Samantha Bassett, Firas Bayaa, Dion Borojevic, Matthew Burroughs, Thomas Carpenter, Ryan Donnelly, Joshua Hastings, Yufan Kambang, Faraz Kashif, Kerry Morgan, Luke Nobes, Samuel Pearce, Alysia Pearman, Harry Scrivener, Molly Smith, Goncalo Tjim, Jack Wilson, Tyler Lawrence, Shaun Preston, Fraser Sanders, Charis Sung.
