Chloe, who is studying a Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in Biomedical Science, was recognised by her lecturers and peers for being an exceptional student. Having spent a phenomenal amount of time carrying out independent research and wider reading, Chloe has continuously gone above and beyond in her studies.

Chloe’s hard work and dedication was celebrated at the tenth anniversary of Pearson’s annual BTEC Awards hosted online in June.

Chloe said, “To get bronze in the BTEC award for Science is one of the biggest achievements I’ve reached, not only physically but mentally. This award has shown that I did the best I could and overcame obstacles which could have had a big impact on my education. I achieved the best grades I could and I was able to do this through the support my college offered me.”

The 2020 BTEC Awards comprised of 17 categories and was hosted by presenter of the United Stand, YouTube influencer and BTEC Ambassador, Flex, with awards presented by Double Olympic Gold medallist Max Whitlock as well as actress and former BTEC Drama student at The BRIT School, Kellie Shirley.

Hilary Gallagher, learning manager for Science, Access and Counselling at Bournemouth & Poole College, said, “We truly believe that Chloe is deserving of the award as not only is she an exceptional student with a positive attitude but she has overcome many barriers and maintains other responsibilities in addition to her studies.”
