Jack Petchey Awards at BSix
The Progression department will celebrate student achievement with the accolade of 12 Jack Petchey Awards during this summer term. There will be six winners before may half term and then six more before the summer break.
The Jack Petchey Foundation works with around 2,000 schools, colleges and youth organisations throughout London and Essex are involved with the Achievement Award scheme.
The scheme is a reward and recognition initiative which allows schools and youth organisations to celebrate the achievements of their young people as well as receive additional funding.
The nomination and selection process is led by the Progession students and monitored by staff. Students have been nominated on the basis of extraordinary achievement, overcoming adverse situations and support for their peers.
As well as the coveted framed Jack Petchey certificate and badge, membership of the JPF Achievers community, winners will receive £250 to be spent on a something of their choice that will benefit their peers and the college (for example, a piece of equipment, a day out for the group, or specialist trainer to come in give a session).
Students will receive their awards during a celebration in college before the end of each half term and will also be invited to the Jack Petchey Awards ceremony to receive their commendation before friends family and other winners from across the borough.
