WMC Camden College celebrates the Class of 2019
WMC Camden College showcased the very best in adult education at their recent annual awards. Learners, proud families and tutors joined guests of honour Keir Starmer MP and The Mayor of Camden, Councillor Maryam Eslamdoust for the event, held at Regent High School, which celebrated and recognised the hard work and achievement of learners.
During his presentation Kier Starmer commented on the important role WMC plays in the community, often reaching out to those left behind, saying: “WMC is about providing new chances and new opportunities. There is something powerful about learning and doing something different. With a wide range of courses on offer, reaching a breadth of people, WMC specialises in supporting learners to help them achieve their personal goals.”
Learners were nominated for a range of awards including “How WMC Changed my Life’ and the Studentship Award. Commenting on the difference the College makes to learners, Principal Helen Hammond said: “Our greatest achievement is changing the life of our learners, all of whom come from different walks of life. We are here for those adults who either want to learn something completely new or build on their existing skills. Our courses are innovative delivering professional and personal development alongside the essential life skills.”
WMC invests in the community offering many of their courses for free or discounted to ensure they are accessible to as many people as possible. Ms Hammond concludes: “Positioned here in the heart of Camden we genuinely are a community college for all.”
