Celebrating adult learning success with volunteers
BAY volunteers are celebrating success at South Devon College.
Nine volunteers working in a variety of different settings have completed a qualification course run by the adult and community learning department at the college.
The course was designed to further their knowledge of different types of organisations that rely on volunteers and the various roles volunteers play within them.
Course tutor Gail Tucker was absolutely delighted but not surprised that all of her students were successful in gaining certificates.

She said they presented an impressive set of portfolios as evidence of their commitment to the course.
Gail said: "I'm really proud of the students. They worked extremely hard and researched a lot of material about the role of the volunteer.
"We had a whole range of organisations represented, including Home Start, Brownies and Age Concern.
"The group did over and above what was required to pass their level two qualification and are now a very knowledgeable group of volunteers, taking all that they have learned out into the community."
Course student Christine Gibbons was volunteering with Age Concern but by the end she had been offered work with Community Voluntary Action.
Eloise Elson, of CVA, was invited to present the NCFE certificates.
She said: "We have been very pleased to be able to support the running of this course and hope there will be more in the future.
"It gives an opportunity for people to extend their skills and knowledge, realise that their volunteer work is important and valuable to their community and also gain some well deserved recognition for it."
