Lincoln College students were recognised for their success, hard work and determination at an annual awards ceremony.
Award winners and their guests joined tutors and business sponsors for a festive meal before the award presentations started.
The event was hosted by Lincoln College CEO Gary Headland and The High Sheriff of Lincolnshire, Air Vice-Marshall Gavin Mackay.
There was live music from Lincoln College Performing Arts students with performances of Christmas songs throughout the evening.
Students from the college were involved in the organisation of the awards ceremony, including Reece Giddens, who took the photos featured in this story.
At the end of the evening, the Student of the Year Awards were presented by the High Sheriff of Lincolnshire for outstanding achievement: Jack Robert Burroughs was named Student of the Year in the 16-18 category, Cristiana Almieda was awarded Student of the Year in the 19+ category and the Apprentice Student of the Year Award was presented to Paige Shackleton.
Gary Headland said: “The annual FE Awards Ceremony for the Lincoln, Gainsborough and Newark Colleges is an incredibly special event in our calendar one of the key ways that we celebrate the great commitment, determination, and achievements by our students; we are very proud of them all.
“The event also allows us to engage very closely with our local and regional employers so that we can better understand their context and business needs, and then innovate to find ways of meeting those needs.
“This engagement and understanding is very important to us so that we can achieve our mission which is to be ‘employer-led, producing a highly skilled and productive local workforce.”
