Childcare Level 2
Storm joined BSix from local Hackney school, The Urswick School, in September 2013 to study Level 1 Childcare. Shortly after having started the course, Storm became pregnant and developed a heart condition, however, her determination and commitment allowed her to complete the course successfully. Being a young mother and the primary carer for her grandmother, with whom she lives in a small flat in Hackney, Storm took a break from her studies last year.
With the support offered by her tutor, she was motivated to make a step forward and return to BSix this academic year. She is now studying the CACHE Level 2 Certificate in Caring for Children, GCSE English and Maths and her progress is impressive. Storm is predicted to achieve the CACHE Level 2 Certificate and gain a grade C in GCSE English.
Storm is a fantastic example of a determined student who has worked hard to achieve and progress despite mitigating circumstances. She also demonstrates one of the fantastic and unique aspects of BSix' provision which enables students to start at the right entry level depending on their background and previous results and how they are then supported to progress through the levels and ultimately onto university or into the world of work – let's see where Storm's next progression will take her to!
