Winner – Emilie Channing-Cone (Bristol Rovers Community Trust)
Emilie Channing-Cone has deservedly won the LFE Learner of the Term September – December award for continually striving to excel in all areas of her Study Programme.
Emilie joined Bristol Rovers’ Community Trust programme last year and initially struggled with the demands of mainstream education. However, this year, it’s been a completely different story for her. This term, Emilie has displayed a consistent level of resilience and maturity towards her studies. Emilie’s pass grades have increased to merit grades across the board, showing great levels of detail throughout her work. Additionally, her attitude within the classroom environment is said to have improved ten fold, constantly working together with her peers and staff to improve further. She was also able to achieve her Functional Skills English Level 1 and 2 by November.
Emilie has faced various challenges throughout her personal life, including changes to her medication and inconsistency with support from her various social workers. She also suffered a knee injury which put her out of action for a number of weeks. Despite these barriers, Emilie has maintained her work ethic in order to complete her assignments to a high standard. She also regularly attends training sessions and matches despite being injured and continually shows her support to everyone else in the team.
Out in the community, Emilie has refereed two primary school girls football tournaments. On top of this, she has thrown herself into her community coaching placement and has gained very positive feedback from her coaches.
“The above achievements put Emilie in a fantastic position to push on and gain a place on a degree course at the University of South Wales as she looks to gain a full time role as a primary school teacher” said Jimmy Lee, Head of Education at Bristol Rovers Community Trust.
Congratulations from everyone at LFE, Emilie!
