A Prize for Laura

The Child Studies department is very proud to announce that the winner of the 2019 – 2020 Christine Lawless Creative Practitioner Prize conferred by Kingston University has been won by Laura Davies, who completed her Level 5 Special Educational Needs and Inclusive Practice Foundation Degree in June 2020 at Brooklands College proudly gaining a Distinction. The prize is awarded to a student who had been nominated by a lecturer from one of the ten partner colleges that deliver the Foundation Degrees on behalf of Kingston University. This includes all 3 Foundation Degrees offered by the university: Early Years, Special Educational Needs & Inclusive Practice, and Leadership & Management.

The prize is awarded to students who display the following characteristics: 

  1. A creative and fun approach to learning
  2. A child centred, personalised approach, valuing the uniqueness of the individual
  3. A team player, supportive to others
  4. The ability to create and enabling, positive, ‘can-do’ attitude.

Laura most certainly displayed all these characteristics throughout her Foundation Degree. Laura was focussed and goal directed, yet was also very supportive of her classmates. By making effective use of the feedback given to her for her assignments, Laura was able to improve her grades as she progressed, and this resulted in her being awarded Distinction for her Foundation Degree.

Congratulations, Laura! This is a very well-deserved award.
