Nick shines as star pupil
Robbins one of the staff in the catering department at Fountain way
has been voted Brockenhurst College's Functional Skill Student of
the year after passing exams for English & Maths at entry level
2 in June 2013.
Nick attended adult learning classes in English & Maths once
a week from September last year. This meant balancing study,
homework and exams with his job at Fountain Way.
The decision to do the course was a joint one between Nick and
his manager and was a brave return to the classroom for Nick who
says: "I found it hard to learn these things at school and often
got told off for being distracted!" I've really enjoyed the
classes, although the exams were hard. I was shocked when I was
told about the award- I had no idea."
The team at Fountain Way would like to congratulate Nick on his
well earned achievement and wish him well for his next year at
Peter Tuthill Support Services Operational Manager says ''He has
worked exceptionally hard and thoroughly deserves this award.''
