At the 11th annual Pearson BTEC Awards ceremony, Weymouth College BTEC Sport and Exercise Science student Meredith Samways was awarded a coveted Bronze BTEC Learner of the Year Award.
Meredith’s success was similarly praised by Martin Oliver (Tutor and Director of Curriculum):
“Meredith thoroughly deserves this National recognition and has been a fantastic Sport and Exercise Science student at Weymouth College. Her strong work ethic and supportive nature leave me in no doubt that she will have a fantastic career as a Primary School teacher and we wish her all the very best in her future career.”
