“Students, proud to receive the awards they had worked so hard for and parents and carers so thrilled to see their success.”
What was a quiet classroom in the morning then became a presentation suite in the afternoon, buzzing with excitement, expectation and eagerness. Students, eyes wide with anticipation, parents and carers faces full of pride. It was Student Awards afternoon!!
It’s a joy to see that accomplishment means so much to the students, especially as a number of them had been convinced that their learning difficulty/disability would mean they couldn’t achieve a City and Guilds qualification. There were certificates achieved by everyone at the student awards celebration – no losers, all winners.
Woodcraft, furniture restoration, cycle maintenance, model building, as well as arts and crafts, are all available at Community Prospects CIC Limited. Our not for profit company is where all these students continue to learn, continue to grow and continue to enjoy positive outcomes. All the hard work put in, great support staff and a few gentle words of encouragement had all accumulated to this – a wonderful celebration of success.
It’s so good to see the expressions of satisfaction on the faces of students, their parents and carers. It’s amazing to feel the positive energy in the room and it’s wonderful to know you can live and learn for a brighter future.
The applause as students came up to receive their certificates was wonderful. A special heartfelt thank you to both the volunteers (most of whom are ex-students on a pathway to possible work placements) and a proud team of staff.
Now to that serious challenge – so many delicious looking cakes, all homemade by students from our Tamworth hub, to be devoured with fresh coffee and tea.
