BTAC Awards

BTAC - LEARNER OF THE YEAR

 

Bedford Borough Council congratulated nearly 200 learners who achieved a nationally recognised CACHE (Council for Awards in Care, Health and Education) qualification through the Council’s assessment centre (BTAC) in the past year. The awards ceremony took place on Monday 21 November, in the Council Chamber, and was attended by guests including the Borough Council’s Chief Executive, Philip Simpkins, and The Mayor, Dave Hodgson.

 

BTAC’s ‘Learner of the Year’, Jennifer Baron, started her journey with us by attending a Level 1 course in January 2013, she successfully completed her Level 2, and recently achieved her Level 3 in Early Years.  She is now working as an Early Years Practitioner in the Goslings class at Kempston Rural Lower School.

 

The Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “I was delighted to be able to congratulate so many people in key roles with children and young people who have, via BTAC, enhanced their own professional development and their skills and knowledge.  Ultimately, it is children and families who benefit from their expertise, so it is great to see so many people who work in different settings with children and young people achieving these qualifications and pursuing further development.”

 

In addition to the CACHE qualifications, BTAC delivers workshops throughout the year on topics such as: Safeguarding Children - Basic Awareness, Safer Recruitment, Early Years Foundation Stage, Care, Learning and Development for Two Year Olds, Paediatric First Aid, Managing Medicines, the Effects of Poverty and Disadvantage on Children and Young People and many more.
