This week, the Mayor and Mayoress of Wirral, Councillor George Davies and Cath Davies, visited the College to award students who have been caring for their local communities.
The Mayor and Mayoress, alongside Principal Sue Higginson, led a virtual awards presentation to over 150 students. The students were recognised with a 'Care for your Community Award', thanks to their time spent fundraising, litter picking and volunteering over the last 12 months.
After the virtual session, the Mayor took a tour of the College's Wirral Waters Construction Campus and met students and apprentices across various trades.
The final stop of the day was a visit to Conway Park campus, where our guests joined Prep for Life students. These courses offer young people aged 16-24 with learning difficulties and/or disabilities, the opportunity to develop independence and work skills that will help them in adult life.

Mayor of Wirral, Councillor George Davies, said: “It was an honour to visit Wirral Met College and meet over 150 students virtually, to present them with their ‘Care for your Community Award’. It is fantastic to see students play a vital role in caring for their local communities through fundraising, litter picking and volunteering.
“The visit also provided an exciting opportunity to explore the College’s state-of-the-art construction campus at Wirral Waters and meet students across all construction trades. The final stop of the visit was Conway Park campus, where I got to meet Prep for Life students, and learn more about the college’s role in developing their independence and work skills.”
