A Northampton College student has been given the chance to impress bosses at the F1 world champions having landed a week’s work experience for being crowned Student of the Year.
Mechanical engineering student James Collins will get the opportunity to work alongside some of the industry’s brightest brains at Mercedes’ Brixworth base this summer, and will also be fast-tracked onto their apprenticeship selection programme early next year.
The award vindicates the 28-year-old’s decision to leave his job as a petrol station supervisor and follow his dream of working in engineering.
Musical Theatre students from Northampton College hope to swap Booth Lane for Broadway having secured places at some of the country’s leading stage schools.
A total of nine Level Three students are now set for the big time – following in the footsteps of some of the biggest stars of stage and screen.
The group will take their places at specialist stage schools across the country and all said their time at Northampton College helped prepare them for their future career.
The first intake of students at Northampton College’s new-look Daventry Campus have been honoured for their hard work and dedication at an awards ceremony.
More than 400 people, including students, their families and a host of VIP guests, attended the ceremony at the new multi-million pound campus in Badby Road West, Daventry On Thursday, June 22.
Best Overall Progress award went to Kurdish student Stira Haj Ibhrahim, who came to England from Syria with her husband eight years ago.
When she first came to England, Stira couldn’t speak any English and didn’t even dare to answer her front door for the first six months. Eventually she developed the courage to join the College and enrolled on a course in English for speakers of other languages. She was inspired to learn words and phrases by reading everything she could get her hands on and watching children’s TV with her young child.
