Westminster Kingsway College student wins regional Deloitte Employability Student Award
15 November 2011
BTEC Level 3 National Diploma Travel and Tourism student, Selcan Doldur beat students from Colleges in London and the South East to win the regional heat of the Deloitte Student Award.
The Student Award is part of the Deloitte Employability Skills Programme, which helps tutors in Further Education colleges teach students the skills, attitudes and behaviours they need to secure and sustain employment. Each student receives a BTEC Level 2 Award in Employability Skills once they have completed the programme and the chance to compete for the ‘National Deloitte Employability Student of the Year’ award, in which Selcan came second.
Selcan and the other finalists spent a weekend as guests of Deloitte demonstrating their employability skills at the Deloitte London offices and attended the National Employability Skills Awards with former Minister of Education, Lord Baker.
Mary Anne Collinson-Marshall, Westminster Kingsway College Tutor, said: “We are very proud of Selcan and all she has accomplished as it reflects the hard work of the students in the College and the positive results from the course. The Employability Skills Development Course is for people going into the Travel and Tourism industry for the first time. It is excellent for team building skills and prepares the students for real world experience. Our students either progress to higher education or go into employment with employers like Air France.”
Selcan Doldur said: “I felt so great and happy at my win. It is a lovely boost to my CV and more importantly a good opportunity for my future work prospects. I’m so glad that I chose to study Travel and Tourism at Westminster Kingsway College. After College, my dream is to study Airport and Airline Management at the University of West London and I’m enjoying every part of making that goal come true.”
