My colleague Richard Jerome, Area Manager of the Learning Communities Team North-East based at the North-East City Learning Centre at Allerton Grange contacted me about some brilliant news...

"Dear Chris, I am delighted to be able to inform you that Catriona MacLeod, based at North-East Leeds City Learning Centre and a star of Aimhigher, has been awarded the prestigious Chartered Institute of Linguists’ Special Commendation. She is to be presented with the trophy, originally given by Professor David Crystal, by HRH Prince Michael on 15th November 2007 in London in recognition of her work in ‘fostering the study of languages’.

This follows our recent success with North-East Leeds City Learning Centre being recognised as a Yorkshire and Humber Business Language Champion by what was the DFES and CILT (National Centre for Languages). Cat’s award is totally deserved and it’s good that her outstanding work in Leeds has received national recognition. Best wishes. Richard."

We are so lucky to be working with so many talented, brilliant, gorgeous and wonderful colleagues here in Leeds.
