A joinery student from West Nottinghamshire College has been awarded a highly-prized City & Guilds Medal of Excellence.

Jordan Harrison, 19, from Sutton-in-Ashfield is one of just 86 people in the world to win the prestigious golden medal this year

Jordan’s tutor and carpentry programme area leader, Andy Whyley, nominated Jordan last academic year for his absolute commitment to his studies and how he has progressed.

Jordan said: “It’s amazing as there are so many students at West Notts and yet I’ve been selected to receive a Medal of Excellence – it’s brilliant.

“I’m grateful to Andy and all the staff who have helped me such a lot.

“It’s such a good feeling, and to know I’m one of 86 in the world too, to get this medal is great.

“I’ve loved life at college right from day one, I’ve always wanted to come and I love being here bright and early.”

Andy Whyley added: “He’s definitely gone from strength to strength and he’s a real credit to the college, his employers and his family.”
