Derwen College student Rhiannon Evans showcased her computer skills when she represented the college in a competition in Birmingham, and returned with a silver medal.
Rhiannon took part in the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Inclusive Skills competition at South & City College, in Birmingham.
The competition saw students from colleges across the West Midlands demonstrate word processing skills including typing copy and inserting images and tables. Rhiannon received a silver medal for her efforts, and made everyone at Derwen College very proud.
Derwen’s Functional Skill Co-ordinator Iain Evans said: “We were delighted that Rhiannon Evans won silver in the competition. She presented herself excellently and worked independently and is a credit to our college.”
Rhiannon’s success follows that of Hospitality and Catering students who won awards in Table Laying and Catering categories at another Inclusive Skills competition hosted by Derwen College. Gold medal winners Adam Ffoulkes-Fenner and Carter Gough will now go on to represent the college and the region at the national finals at WorldSkills UK LIVE, at the NEC Birmingham, in November.
Derwen College Principal and Vice CEO Meryl Green said: “Well done Rhiannon. What a fantastic result.”
She added: “The competition successes just keep coming which is a clear reflection of all the hard work students and staff do and the amazing standards that can be achieved. Thanks to everyone involved.”
Inclusive Skills competitions offer an opportunity for young people with disabilities and learning difficulties to showcase their skills. Competitions are a great way for all to show off their work skills and growing independence.
