A three day trip to an adventure centre has given Northampton College students the chance to get out of their comfort zone and boost their confidence with a host of team-building activities.

The trip, arranged as part of the National Citizen Service (NCS), saw dozens of students head to Liddington in Wiltshire where they took part in activities such as raft-building, trapeze and a giant swing.

NCS team leader Parmilla Begum said: “This is the eighth project I’ve been involved with and every time I love it, it’s amazing. The change in young people is incredible. They are all very nervous at the start but by the end they are all excited and ready to go and help out in the community.”

An aspiring railway engineer from Northampton College is firmly on track for future success having been named the regional winner of the National Apprenticeship Awards.

Darren Stawarz, a mature student who is currently completing an NVQ at Booth Lane while working as a project engineer at Knorr-Bremse RailServices in Wolverton, was named the East Midlands winner in the Higher or Degree Apprentice category.

Having fought off the challenge of more than 800 entrants, Darren will now progress to the national finals of the awards – which showcase the diverse range of sectors engaged with apprenticeships and celebrate outstanding apprentices and employers.
