WSFC Business students organise successful Karting event
On Tuesday 13th February 2018, students studying the Business Extended Diploma organised a successful visit to 'Karting Worcester' as part of their unit on 'Managing an Event'. The students carried out a detailed risk assessment which passed the high standards set by the College, and they were responsible for all the administration involved. To their credit, the event took place without a hitch and all students enjoyed the responsibility involved in organising and managing the event. Their maturity and self-discipline shone through on the day - and they had fun. Well done to all involved!
WSFC teacher shortlisted for national award!
Congratulations to Worcester Sixth Form College teacher Wes Davis who has been shortlisted in the Times Educational Supplement Awards 'Teacher of the Year’ category. The awards ceremony will be held at the prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel in London's Park Lane on the evening of Friday 23 February 2018.
The College nominated Wes for his exceptional examination results each year and for his outstanding commitment and contribution to the development of teaching and learning strategies. The College nomination, on the basis of which he was shortlisted, says: "His contribution to positive changes in teaching and learning across the College and beyond and his commitment to continual investigation of new learning techniques is exceptional. We are in no doubt that his approach is a major factor in the outstanding examination results that he achieves each year."
Wes voluntarily gives up his time in College holidays, weekends and evenings to offer extra support and revision sessions for students. Numerous former students were keen to provide testimonials in support of his nomination. One student refers to Wes' "passion" for his subject and his dedication to enabling her to exceed her potential.
Principal, Michael Kitcatt, said "Wes is a sparkling example of all that is good about the teaching profession: totally dedicated, innovative and inspirational. As well as being an outstanding teacher of his subject, he has helped to spread good practice throughout the College. His recognition for this award is thoroughly deserved and we wish him every success at the ceremony."
