NSCG’s Stafford College celebrates learners’ success at annual Awards Ceremony supported by Ellis Williams

On Tuesday 11 June, staff, students, employers, sponsors and award presenters gathered at Stafford County Showground for the Newcastle and Stafford Colleges Group’s (NSCG) annual Celebration Awards. Almost 40 awards were presented for outstanding achievements in a number of areas, including academic and creative studies, vocational studies, skills and technology subjects, apprenticeships and for employer recognition.


The event was attended by the award winners and their families, lecturers, governors, partner employers and special guest Steve Tellwright, People and Quality Director at Capula. The Celebration Awards are a key event in the NSCG calendar and provides staff and students with the opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the successes of the past academic year.

The evening began with an incredible performance by Music Performance student, Melissa Corns, who sang a cover of Abba’s ‘Thank You for the Music’. This was followed by an introduction to the evening’s proceedings by Principal and Chief Executive, Craig Hodgson who welcomed guests to the event. During the event, the award winners’ outstanding achievements were highlighted, detailing why they had been nominated for their category.

Craig Hodgson, Principal and Chief Executive at NSCG Stafford College, said:
“The Celebration Awards have become an iconic evening for everyone at NSCG, each year I’m blown away by the stories of achievement and it brings me such pride to be able to celebrate the incredible successes of our students, apprentices and employers.

“I would like to thank Staffordshire University for being our headline sponsor, our guests and the team at the beautiful Stafford Country Showground for their support throughout the evening.

“I’d like to extend my thanks to all our other sponsors and award presenters for their time and generosity.

“Finally, I would also like to acknowledge NSCG’s talented and dedicated staff who work so hard to create a safe, supportive and nurturing environment for our learners, ensuring they leave us ready to progress and confident in their next steps.”
