BEDFORD BOROUGH COUNCIL’S TRAINING AND ASSESSMENT CENTRE (BTAC) AWARDS

Mayor, Dave Hodgson, presented over 100 BTAC students, from a range of roles within the children’s workforce, with their qualifications last week at an awards evening which took place at the Corn Exchange.

 

The annual celebration saw many family members, friends, managers and work colleagues gather together in support of those who had achieved their various awards within the children’s workforce.

 

The Mayor, Dave Hodgson, said: “It’s the Borough’s children who will benefit from the skills and knowledge that these individuals have gained through their hard work and determination. I am proud that we have such an array of talent on hand to help our young people to thrive.”

 

The Mayor also presented some special achievement awards. These students had been nominated by their assessors for going that one step further in the process of their learning and had overcome a number of barriers in their learning journeys.

 

Here are two examples the special achievement awards:

 

Talisha Brown Achieving ‘Against the Odds’

Talisha worked towards her Level 2 in Children’s Learning and Development, while also completing a health and Social Care NVQ.

 

She was working as a volunteer in her setting and worked long evening shifts in a care home in order to complete the other award.

 

Time management to complete tasks was difficult, as she has very young children.

 

All assignments were handwritten, yet she made sure she gave them in on time, and often worked late into the night to complete them.

 

Raising the Standards in Childcare

This award went to Sheron Proctor Playwork Level 3, and Tracy Harte and Gina Morgan Play Work Level 2, who work at Kids Active After School Club and Holiday Play Scheme at Ursula Taylor Lower School, in Clapham.

 

They now have a Play Policy adopted throughout the school, quite a challenge to advocate the benefits of Playwork in an education establishment, but this they have achieved.
