Tresham College Achievements Ceremony 2018
Two of our apprentices Will Vanner and Loren Cooper were recognised for their hard work at the Tresham College Presentation of Apprenticeship ceremony with awards in Construction for Immediate Apprenticeship in Maintenance Operations. Will and Loren joined the Prestige Homeseeker Park & Leisure Homes team as Apprentices in 2017 and are developing their careers by completing an apprenticeship in Construction Building Maintenance Operations with the Bedford College Group.
Joining the event was the Mayor of Corby, where Tresham College has exciting campus and where a new Learning Centre to upgrade adult IT skills is to be opened. Together with the existing Learning Centre in Kettering, 1,000 students will be enrolled each year.
As well as modern campuses in Kettering and Corby, the Wellingborough campus is to benefit from as £7.5 Million investment which will bring 1,000 students into the town centre, reported Ian Pryce CBE, Principal and CEO of The Bedford College Group, created via the merger with Tresham College in August 2017.
“Tonight we celebrate the achievements of the first full academic year since the merger and acknowledge the part played in that progress by local councils, MPs, parents and students. We thank our sponsors whose supports indicates the value local employers place on Tresham College: Tata Steel, The Weetabix Food Company, RS Components, Prestige Homeseeker Park and Leisure Homes, Keepmoat Home and Howarth Timber.
“Student results at Tresham College have been particularly impressive. As part of the group, it contributed to taking 1,000 students, who had failed their CGSE Maths or English at school, and passed after only 34 weeks at college.
“Progression for students on to Higher Education, or degree-level learning courses, is being made available through closer relationships with universities in Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire.
“So if you want to get ahead of the rest, head for Tresham.”
Mr Pryce did take the opportunity to criticise Government funding for “technical education”. He said: “The recent Institute for Fiscal Studies report showed that college funding per student has gone from 50% above the level for schools to 8% below in 20 years and colleges have been hardest hit by austerity. If we want world class skills, then we must invest in colleges.”
Chair of The Bedford College Group Corporation Roger Marriott welcomed investment by the South East Midlands LEP (SEMLEP) into the group – including the campus at Wellingborough. “We are ambitious for our students and welcome the highest levels of achievement.”

Durdle Door Holiday Park is idyllically located between breath taking sea views and stunning hill and countryside views on the Dorset’s Jurassic Coast.
It is here, nestled in a large quiet corner plot in the Park with a generous garden and beautiful countryside views, that the brand new luxurious Lulworth Skipper Lodge will reside. (Skipper Lodge based on Prestige Homeseeker Burleigh holiday home).
With outstanding quality and workmanship, this fresh and modern lodge is bound to turn heads and is the perfect first lodge for anyone.
After 18 months of planning, and looking for the perfect lodge, we are so happy to have found ourselves the incredible Lulworth Skipper from Prestige Homeseeker.
The General Manager of Durdle Door Holiday Park, Rebecca Williams, was brought in by owner James Weld only 2 years ago, but the difference she and her team have made is astounding.
In this short amount of time they have built a new access road to the famous Durdle Door beauty spot; increased Park security with an owner’s barrier; built a tight knit team and brought the onsite bar and restaurant back in house, which will reopen next year after a refurbishment, and now they have secured the first lodge at the park which is the start of great things to come in the future!
Gary Stillman, Durdle Door Holiday Park’s Head of Sales, has a background in luxury lodges and has been working closely with Prestige Homeseeker to bring this new venture to life. If you would like any more information about the Lulworth Skipper or Durdle Door Holiday Park, please contact Gary on 07841053289.

We are raising money for the Cransley Hospice and Lakeland Hospice, two fantastic charities that need our help! We have set up a just giving page for both charities which means all donations will go straight to the registered charity and will automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more.
