Shine Awards 2016

BBC Coventry & Warwickshire DJ Trish Adudu hosted a night of celebration at the Ricoh Arena on Wednesday 14th December. The College ended the year by recognising outstanding achievement across all areas. The SHINE awards were presented for students and staff whose actions really made them stand out from the crowd.

Double award winner Jerome Phillips stole the show by winning The SHINE Construction Learner of the Year and the coveted Coventry College, City Campus; SHINE Student of the Year Award.

Jerome’s standard of work was so high his tutors decided to enter him in the regional heats for Skill build, which are the preliminary rounds for the International WorldSkills Competition.  He did himself and the College proud, the judges were very impressed and because he had scored so highly he was invited to the national final at the NEC in Birmingham.  Here again he impressed the judges so much he was selected to train with squad UK with the possibility of representing Great Britain in the World Skills competition that is to be held in Abu Dhabi in 2017.
