Hard working student Alice Greswell defied adversity and achieved an outstanding grade 5 in her GCSE maths exam.
Alice, with support from our Learning Support team was able to complete her exam which asks her to interpret shapes and graphs, and measurements of angles despite her visual impairment.
Not wanting to let her phenomenal achievement go without a worthy celebration, Lecturer Tim Arthey, with support from Visual Impairment Coordinator Jane Readfern-Gray, launched a brief for Graphic Design students to produce a certificate that would appeal to Alice’s stronger senses, a certificate she could read through touch.
Students made use of a 3D and laser printers, paper sculpting and fabrics to create their certificates, with winner Daniel Coleman producing an embossed version of the college logo; which was the first time Alice was able to interpret what the College’s logo was like.
Graphic Design runners up included Lillie-Mae Dean, Harry Lewis, Joseph Missin & Nadia Barcyznska who also produced certificates recognising Alice’s outstanding effort and achievement.
