Richmond upon Thames College student Pedro Gouveia has been recognised as the College's 'Best Learner' at an annual award ceremony celebrating the achievements of learners across South London. The ceremony, hosted on May 19 by Lord Tope, took place at the House of Lords and was organised by the Committee of South London Principals (COSLP) which represents colleges in the boroughs of Croydon, Kingston, Bromley, Richmond, Sutton and Merton.

Pedro, who is now 19, joined the college in September 2011 from Clarendon School, enrolling on a Life Skills course before progressing to a Level 2 Creative IT course. He now studies a BTEC L3 in IT.

He was nominated for the Best Learner award by his teacher at the college, Ella Jukic, who was full of praise for his efforts.

"Pedro has been an outstanding student and fully deserves recognition for the hard work he has put in to his studies, she said. "He is an active participant in the classroom, always stays on top of his coursework and has a great sense of humour. The whole IT department is overjoyed with his development both academically and personally."
