Students who made an outstanding effort within our BeReady programme had their achievements recognised at a certificate presentation at the end of this academic year.

BeReady is our unique tutorial and pastoral care programme which focuses on a range of personal, social and cultural topics. Highly commended in our Matrix standard accreditation, it is designed to develop personal skills and prepares students for a successful career and life in today’s society. Topics include staying safe, mental health awareness and wellbeing, employability skills, healthy lifestyles, British values, politics and volunteering.

In addition to completing the tutorial programme, students who achieve their BeReady passport at gold level have shown excellent progress in their course, completed their work placement, demonstrated excellent employability and digital skills and contributed to Reaseheath’s PRIDE values.

Three students who had achieved their BeReady Gold Passport, along with others who had achieved silver awards, were invited for lunch with Assistant Principals Trudie McGuinness and John Kendall, along with their proud course managers.

The gold level students were:

  • Jordana Stubbs: Best Student Achievement on BeReady Passport (Level 2 Technical Certificate in Animal Care)
  • Rosie Laxton (Level 3 (1080) Advanced Technical Extended Diploma in Animal Management)
  • Inka Nelson-Barenys (Level 3 (1080) Advanced Technical Extended Diploma in Animal Management)

Unfortunately Rosie and Inka were unable to join us, as they had begun employment in their chosen sector, but all three gold award winners have been invited to return in the Autumn term to plant a tree as a lasting legacy of our centenary birthday.

Quality and Standards Coach Emily Jewell said: “Our BeReady gold and silver level students have demonstrated that they have been able to work above and beyond the requirements of their vocational course. They have worked remarkably hard to achieve their awards, particularly with the ongoing challenges of Covid-19, and we wish them every success in the next stages of their lives.”

An additional 55 students achieved their BeReady silver level and 102 achieved bronze – a tremendous total of 160!
