Almost seventy students at the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East Londonâ€™s Enfield Centre graduated with Access to Nursing and Access to Social Work qualifications this month. With a success rate of 95% for Access to Nursing and just under 94% for Access to Social Work, the quality of these courses is outstanding.
Most students have already gained highly sought after places at university to study Social Work, Nursing and Midwifery. The delighted students and staff from the College’s School of Health and Social Care gathered for a special Awards ceremony last Wednesday (14 September).
Nursing student, Rachel Moss, who won Highest Achievement Award 2011, is now studying Midwifery at South Bank University. Rachel said: “I have gained many skills that will serve me well in the future including self-confidence and self-belief.”
Candace Johnson won the Personal Achievement Award. Candace, who is now studying BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing at Middlesex University, said: “I knew the course had an excellent reputation and great pass rates so I was thrilled when I was offered a place. When I graduate, I’d like to work in a hospital A&E Department.”
The moving and special ceremony, was attended by staff and students throughout the College’s School of Health and Social Care. Invited by Vice Principal Curriculum and Learner Experience, Jane O’Neill, staff came to the stage and received heartfelt cheers and applause from their students. Jane said: “It was a truly enjoyable evening, handing out the awards to students after all their hard work.
