Lauren is Learner of the Year
Lauren started our Teenage Parent Study Programme whilst pregnant with her baby Rosie. She suffers with Type 1 Diabetes and had a very bad pregnancy where she suffered from pre-eclampsia and then further complications for baby Rosie when she was born. Although very tired and struggling with her own health, Lauren continued to attend with Rosie, who was just weeks old, and worked her hardest at all times.
She has a caring presence and always offered the other learners a helping hand. When the group suffered a loss of one of their peers, Lauren was the one to support her friends even in her own grief, taking the time to make sure everyone was okay. Lauren showed great maturity for a 17 year old.
During her time on the programme Lauren successfully completed Level 2 Functional English, Level 1 Employability, Level 1 Childcare and GCSE English.
Lauren is ambitious and has a clear direction of the life that she wants to secure for herself and Rosie. She wants to complete an apprenticeship in the childcare sector. Lauren has overcome so much in the past year with personal problems and challenges as well as managing her health but through it all she continues to attend and complete her qualifications whilst being a fantastic role model to other young parents but, even more so, a fantastic mummy to Rosie.
Lauren has shown and built up so many positive attributes, skills and qualities which is why she was awarded with our Learner of the Year award and sets the pathway for other young parents to follow in her steps.
“Lauren’s compassion, sensitivity to others and understanding of the world makes Lauren a special learner. Academically, she is capable of anything she sets out to do. Personally, Lauren has so much to give future employers and people that will be lucky enough to have the pleasure of working with her. When Lauren finishes her course with us she will be missed. However I also know that she will be ready to embrace the next chapter of building her career and future for baby Rosie and I look forward to following her journey which began with us.”
