Success at Apprenticeship Awards

Well done to our two apprentices Kath Fry and Amber Henton who both won awards at the East Coast College Apprenticeships Awards last night.

Both Kath and Amber won awards for Outstanding Apprentice and Amber also received the runner up award for Apprentice Of The Year.

East Coast College holds an annual Apprenticeship Awards ceremony where apprentices are nominated by their employers, assessors or tutors in special recognition of their achievements.

SEND Coordinator Nicola Jervis said:

Amber has recently been promoted to a more senior position which means that she is responsible for supporting students in KS4 in Maths and Science. The new role also comes with some additional responsibilities within the department. I have been incredibly impressed this year with Amber’s commitment to supporting those students, and her leadership within the department itself. She has presented training on the deployment of LSA’s to a group of 40 trainee teachers, and is always willing to step up and support colleagues both within the department and in the school as a whole. Her willingness to improve both her subject knowledge and her skills as an LSA are outstanding.

Kath’s enthusiasm and commitment to her role has been apparent from the start, but what has particularly impressed me this year is the commitment that Kath has given to her apprenticeship course despite working full time, and having many external commitments already. Kath has thrown herself into her studies as well as her role this year, and it was recently commented on in a lesson observation how hard she worked to support the students in the lesson. Kath’s resilience, role knowledge and confidence have all grown dramatically this year and I am incredibly proud of how far she has come this year.

City of Norwich School is very proud of Kath's and Amber's personal accomplishments and the value that they bring to the school.
