A special thanks to Juliana Martin mentor, tutor and teacher in Foundation Learning teaching and Jemima Boateng, trainee teacher, whose work contributed to winning this award. 

"Foundation Learning comprises of students from Entry 1 to Level 2 (GCSE), trainee teachers work with these different levels and can observe in all the classes.  They are exposed to “real life teaching” and are able to call on me during the work day for support." - Juliana Martin

The Entry 1 Book Club has been running since 2012 and has resulted in an increased focus on literacy in the Entry 1 Level curriculum.  The students involved have developed their skills and confidence in reading, writing and speaking in public.  They have also benefited from the extensive collection of library books within the LRC which ranges from pre-literate materials to challenging texts.

"I am delighted to raise the profile of the LRC's excellent work in the college as well as the vital role played by Foundation Learning in building confidence and removing barriers to success for students with learning and physical disabilities. I am so thankful for my line manager, Rod Kain and my colleagues for releasing me to do this valuable work with Entry 1 learners, and to Entry 1 staff for being so supportive and working with me." - Carole Davison

Simon Birchall (PTM for English) received the runner up prize also for the Promoting Reading category for his creative writing project with A Level students.  Well done to everyone involved.
