Gratitude from PM for staff member
Tue, 05 December 2017
Luke Podmore, sports development officer at Tameside College, has been recognised by the prime minister for his efforts in encouraging young people to take part in the national citizens service (NCS).
Brendan Laffey, engagement coordinator for NCS visited the college to present the certificate, signed by the organisations’ chief executive, Michael Lynas and prime minister Theresa May.
The national citizens service is open for all 16 and 17 year olds and helps them to build skills for work and life. It runs throughout the summer, with participants taking part in a social action project, university style residential visit and an action packed outdoor activity.
Luke, said: “I am honoured to receive this certificate. I am passionate about what I do so to receive a thank you for it is great. I never thought something like this would happen and it will definitely be framed on my wall. However I couldn’t do my work without the staff and students around me so thank you to them.”
Brendad, said: “It’s great to see Luke being recognised for his achievements. He has dedicated himself to supporting NCS over the last few years and lots of students wouldn’t have taken part without him. He is a great role model for others and the gratitude from ourselves is well deserved.”
