Truro and Penwith College achieve highest possible grades

Congratulations to apprentices on the Truro and Penwith College business administration and team leader supervisor apprenticeships, who have all achieved distinction grades, the highest grade possible

The 20 apprentices, who work in businesses across Cornwall, are the first to remotely take part in their awarding body’s end point assessments (EPAs), since moving to online learning amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Outstanding levels of support from tutors, employers, Truro and Penwith College’s remote learning model and its Connected College initiative have culminated in making the exceptional levels of achievement possible.

Adele Bull, programme team leader for business and professional training at Truro and Penwith College, said: “The recent results for our first apprenticeship groups to have completed their assessments remotely are nothing short of incredible.”

“A distinction grade is only achieved by the very best apprentices who produce outstanding portfolio work throughout their course and back that up with a top performance at EPA, which is all the more impressive when you consider these apprentices moved to remote learning in the middle of their course.”

Truro and Penwith College has also ensured remote learning doesn’t get in the way of the apprentices celebrating their achievements, keeping everyone connected with remote graduation celebrations over Microsoft Teams.

Business administration apprentice George Griffin (pictured, bottom right) from Flynqy Pilot Training said: “Remote learning was different but in some ways I preferred it. The college’s support was outstanding and was there when I needed help with final deadlines, projects and revision.”

”I have developed skills I can apply to my job such as planning and completing projects; I am currently working on digitalising admin processes at Flynqy and mentoring our new business administration apprentice.”
