Sometimes in this job you are simply humbled by the achievements of others...

This evening was one of those moments when I went to Leeds Metropolitan University to recognise and celebrate the achievements of a group of our learning mentors. This group of 27 colleagues were the first group nationally to be awarded the new 'Working with Young People and Young People's Services' Foundation Degree. They have managed to juggle home, work and study and be really successful... 27 started the course and 27 completed the course and were awarded their degrees!

The course was developed by Gill Dawson and her colleagues and taught by Jo Bishop of Leeds Met and her colleagues. It has been a brilliant success and enabled a wonderful group of colleagues to achieve something really special. I hope to get a list of the names of this talented group of colleagues and a picture for the blog later this week.
