Last week, Level 3 Early Years and Childcare student, Ruby Beck, received the Jack Petchey award to celebrate her hard work and dedication studying at Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC).
The Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme recognises the positive contributions, efforts and endeavours of young people aged 11-25 across London and Essex. These achievements include being a great role model, volunteering, overcoming personal challenges and supporting others over and above expectations.
Each term exceptional students are nominated by their classmates to win a Jack Petchey award. The winner receives a £300 grant, which can be used for anything that will benefit the class.
Ruby won the award this term for being a motivated learner who always gives 100% in her work and attitude to learning. She has also recently gained employment at her placement in prestigious local nursery, Windsor Kindergarten, receiving excellent feedback from her employers and parents.
On top of this, Ruby plays an active part in the running of the Early Years department TikTok account. Showcasing some of the highlights of the course content and advertising the facilities and benefits of studying at RuTC.
Ruby’s tutor, Frankie Holliday comments, “Ruby is always polite and professional. She has helped others settle into their college experience this September, making them feel included and welcome in class and around college.”
