Apprenticeship results are at an all-time high at Preston College after the latest cohorts across a range of industry sectors completed their End Point Assessments. We are delighted to announce the following results:

  • Level 3 Site Carpentry: 8 Distinctions
  • Level 2 Hairdressing: 7 Distinctions
  • Level 3 Business Admin: 24 Distinctions

In addition, we have recorded:

  • Level 4 Operational Management: 100% first time pass rate with 75% achieving Distinction
  • Level 3 Team Leading: 100% first time pass with 42% achieving  Distinction
  • Level 2 Customer Service: 100% first time pass rate with 50% achieving  Distinction
  • Level 3 Customer Service: 100% first time pass rate with 40% achieving  Distinction
  • Level 3 Dental Nursing: 100% first time pass rate 
  • Level 3 Pharmacy Technician: 100% first time pass rate

Against a regional and national backdrop where many colleges have been facing numerous challenges of the complexities of the End Point Assessments, we are thrilled to see that our apprentices are bucking the trend and are confidently outperforming the sector norms.

Linzi Monks, head of apprenticeships and employer engagement, says: “These recent results represent a remarkable achievement of both our learners and our college. The levels of distinctions and pass rates we have received following these most recent End Point Assessments are not only a testament to the dedication, commitment and hard work of our apprentices, but also to the exceptional support provided by our staff who have been instrumental in guiding and mentoring our learners throughout their apprenticeship journey.”

Chris Lafferty, construction director at Wainhomes says: “We have an amazing relationship with Preston College and we have had apprentices with them for over six years. This year’s cohort of apprentices were nothing but short of phenomenal and the three joiners that has just completed, Matthew, Zach and Joe have been exceptional and I am more than happy to say that they will continue to work for Wainhomes. We are all really proud at what they have achieved.”

Ian MacDonald, regional apprentice manager Persimmon Lancashire, says: “Congratulations to all the apprentices who have passed their End Point Assessments.

“At Persimmon, we are committed to building people’s potential and apprenticeships are a fantastic way to gain hands-on experience. We are proud of our strong partnerships with colleges across the country, including Preston College. 

“Several of our apprentices working across sites in Lancashire have completed their apprenticeships at Preston College, and we look forward to continuing to grow this relationship.

"The college will continue to support our apprentices throughout their journey to become the workforce of the future; aiding the growth of our community and local economy. Many of the apprentices will continue to progress into high levels of apprenticeships, whilst others who have completed their studies have been given the opportunity to continue in permanent, full-time employment with their employer.”

Linzi adds: “These results do not come easy and it is through the encouragement and unwavering support to our apprentices that we are able to report such incredible results. However, the real celebration goes to the apprentices themselves.

"To reach such high levels of attainment is outstanding; showing great levels of tenacity, hard work and diligence which has led to full time jobs in an industry they love. We are all very proud of what they have achieved.”
