My colleague Steve Smith, Playing for Success and Quality Assurance in Study Support Manager in the Learning Communities Team sent me some really good news...

"Dear Chris, just to let you know that at the QiSS (Quality in Study Support) recognition Meeting held last week, the White Rose Learning Centre was successful in gaining Established status for the quality of their study support provision. Their presentation charted the path of a pupil from first involvement with the Centre as a pupil with low confidence and self esteem - through to her involvement as a peer mentor - to 9 GCSEs at A*-C ... to lead mentor ... the interesting thing was that the pupil Jess Fletcher (Morley High) - co-hosted the event and presented alongside Rachael the Centre Manager with great confidence. Their portfolio was exemplary and they did Education Leeds proud!! Jess, Rachael Holdgate, Shabana Mughal and Dave Crighton as well as Peter Smith the Shopping Centre Manager answered the scrutiny panel's questions and made it a great 'learning day' for all involved. Regards Steve"

The White Rose Study Support Centre is another of our brilliant learning places and Rachael and her team have made a real difference for so many young people through the work of the Centre. It is great to know that this work has now been officially recognised by this award.
