Mitchell Slawson, FE Lecturer
It is clear to see that Mitchell inspires his learners to succeed on and off the field. With his motivational and positive attitude, he helps students achieve the goals and has done so with great success.
Mitchell has developed a fantastic rapport with his learners - he inspires them to come to college and learn. Inside the classroom, he has supported his learners to be more confident in their studies. Staff and students can only speak positively about Mitchell’s excellent attitude and inspiring qualities. He is an asset to SCL.
Rachel Teal, FE Lecturer
Rachel shows true excellence in her role as FE Sports Lecturer for our Elite Cricket Programme.
Not only did all 12 of Rachel’s Extended Diploma students receive amazing final grades, but all of them are off to University as well. 90 Credit Diploma students are also on course to achieve similar success, which reflects Rachel’s determination and excellent attitude. Rachel strives to keep her students motivated and this was picked up by OFTSED, who reported on how engaged the learners are and how great the Elite Cricket Programme is. Rachel is highly spoken of and is a credit to SCL!
Matthew Norriss, Systems Assistant
Matt has only worked for us for five months, but he has already made a positive impact from day one. Matt initially started in the Customer Services dept on a temporary contract but we were fortunate enough to have the right permanent role for Matt that matched his skills and experience.
Matt is a valued member of the head office team that is always willing to help everyone and anyone in any team or department. He takes on tasks outside his standard role and completes them willingly and without any fuss. Anything that is needed, Matt makes sure it happens taking ownership for the problem and finding a solution.
He is a complete team player who is trusted to get the job done, which was recently reflected when he worked over the weekend on a project to support with an OFSTED Inspection that was beyond the normal requirements of his role but to ensure as a team we were prepared as we could be.
Outstanding Achievement Award
Vic Harry, Curriculum Manager
Vic has been with us for 15 years and has seen and been integral in a lot of changes over that time. Vic has taken the continuous change in his stride and continued to support the growth of the company as we have tackled each and every situation and opportunity that has approached us.
He has great knowledge of the business and the ever changing landscape and has a calmness and steadiness that is a vital skill set within the E&T Management team.
He is constantly dependable and reliable and is always trusted to do the best by his learners, team and the business.
Vic’s peers nominated him after his outstanding work during Ofsted for leading from the front and supporting his staff throughout the week.
E&T got the call from OFSTED on the Friday in which a working group was put together this went late into Friday and throughout the weekend, in which Vic was involved in making sure his team and the OFSTED team had all the data they required in readiness for the inspection.
On the Wednesday we were made aware they would be inspecting Hampton & Richmond & due to a staff vacancy, Vic stepped in and delivered the lesson. Feedback from the observation was outstanding and when explained to Ofsted Vic’s role is curriculum manager, and that he stepped in they were extremely impressed.
Employee of the Quarter Award
Ollie Hooker, Primary Tutor
Ollie is a great representative of the SCL Way. Ollie is a credit, not just to the Primary Department but to SCL as a whole. Ollie is passionate about the clubs he runs and the relationships he is continuously building with parents, teachers and children in his care. Ollie has the tough task of working at a special needs school which provides challenges in itself.Ollie receives a lot of good feedback from his schools but none more than the special needs school. He never misses a deadline and is constantly pushing his colleagues to be the best they can be. Ollie manages two of the highest performing clubs in the Primary Department and his numbers for these clubs have been improving consistently for the whole academic year. To summarise, Ollie Hooker is exactly what you would expect from an SCL member of staff and he portrays the SCL values to a tee.
