There are lots of topics covered in the latest edition of the BLC Messenger including our lead story about our huge apprenticeship success. Not only are apprentices at Buxton & Leek College more likely to complete their apprenticeship than the national average, achievement rates are also higher than national benchmarks in a survey carried out by the College.

We also report on lots of individual students and their successes, including Darren Spencer who is now in line for a House of Commons role, likely to involve briefing ministers! Darren thought he’d left it too late to pursue his career dreams but following a one year Access Education course with us he’s well on his way to a sparkling career.
