Students who made an outstanding effort to reach the top tier of 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 latest 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.

Last week nine students who had achieved their BeReady Gold Passport were invited for lunch with Principal Marcus Clinton, Vice Principal Matt Gower, Assistant Principal Trudie McGuinness and Quality and Standards Coach Emily Jewell, along with their proud course managers.

The gold level students were:

· Isabel Darby (Level 3 Extended Diploma in Agriculture)

· Michael Beavan (Level 3 Extended Diploma in Agriculture)

· Chloe Nadin (Level 3 Advanced Technical Extended Diploma in Agriculture)

· Lois Heath (Level 2 Diploma in Animal Care)

· Jamie Sewell (Level 3 (720) Advanced Technical Extended Diploma in Animal Management)

· Alex Hodgson (Level 3 (1080) Advanced Technical Extended Diploma in Animal Management)

· Joseph Gough (Level 3 (1080) Advanced Technical Extended Diploma in Animal Management)

· Oliver Corden-Lepetit (Level 3 Extended Diploma In Business)

· Ella Louise Williams (Level 3 Extended Diploma In Events Management)

Six of our winners were unable to join us, as they had begun employment in their chosen sector, but we were delighted to welcome Lois Heath, Jamie Sewell and Joseph Gough.

Emily Jewell said: “All our BeReady gold 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 Gold passports, particularly in such a challenging year, and we wish them every success in the next stages of their lives.”
