Ceremony to recognise outstanding work at the Land-based Technology Unit.

A farewell ceremony was held recently with students from the Land-based Technology department at Glynllifon. There was an opportunity to thank the students who had completed the Level 2 and Level 3 courses in very challenging circumstances, given the global pandemic.

Esmor Wyn Hughes, BTEC Co-ordinator Level 3 Extended Diploma in Agriculture, said.

“The perseverance of students over the past year has been highly commended. This BTEC course involves a lot of practical work, in the workshop, and due to constraints, this had not been possible all year round. But despite that, the students have shown endurance and perseverance. ”

He added -

“Holding an event like this, so that we as a College can show our appreciation to the students is very important to us as a department. All the students received a certificate, and some received additional recognition, for their outstanding work during the past academic year. ”

Level 2 Land-based Engineering - Iolo Jones Evans
