Ronnie Calverley-Sumner (Accrington Stanley Community Trust)
First-year learner Ronnie has made an excellent transition from high school to further education, producing high-quality BTEC work, as well as accumulating over 50 hours as a volunteer coach at a local athletics club.
Sam Morris, Accrington Stanley’s Sports Tutor, told LFE:” Ronnie has produced some good pieces of work, contributes well to class discussions and always displays a positive attitude towards staff and fellow students.
“Ronnie has aspirations to be a sports coach when he completes his qualification and to support his career goal, he has been volunteering at a local athletics club. The club is based within a deprived area and allows children from within the locality to participate in various athletic events.
“Since Ronnie has started to volunteer, he has shown an improvement in confidence, especially his social skills in the classroom and within training and games.”
