Dragons’ Den entrepreneur Peter Jones presented a Rugby student with an award at a graduation ceremony.

Bethany Taylor, from Warwickshire College’s Rugby centre, is celebrating after receiving the award at the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy in London.

She was awarded the Level 3 Student of the Year Award, sponsored by Expansys, for her dedication to the course.

The Student of the Year is nominated by fellow students who believe the candidate demonstrates key entrepreneurial qualities and acts as a role model to the team.

Bethany said: “I wasn’t expecting to win Level 3 Student of the year, even though I knew that I had been nominated by my peers and tutors. When they called my name to say that I had won I was in shock because I didn’t think that out of all of the other colleges that it would be me.”
