Leah’s remarkable learner journey, from a Youth Access member right up to her current HN programme and employment with FARE in Easterhouse, certainly impressed the BEA judges and, though she did not manage to win the Young Person of the Year category, she joined the select handful of students who received certificates on the night.
Leah is pictured here with her proud Mum, Tracey, displaying her certificate at the ceremony. Fiona Templeton, Senior CLD Worker with the College, joined them in Manchester for an exciting and rewarding evening.
Reaching so far in this prestigious national event is a fantastic achievement and everyone involved with Leah is extremely proud of her success so far. Congratulations go to Leah and all the staff who have supported her.
Added to this, Glasgow Kelvin is also extremely proud of Andrew Gray who was awarded the Scottish Degree Student of the Year by the British Education Awards at the same event.
Although Andrew achieved first-class honours at Glasgow Caledonian University, his journey back into education began with Glasgow Kelvin College on a Scottish Wider Access Programme (SWAP) Access to Mathematics back in 2014. Since then he has gone on to great achievements.
His success is a fine example of the impact of partnership working and of the College’s long and fruitful relationship with SWAP. Congratulations go to Andrew and warmest good wishes for his future.
