Students of Inspire Education Group (IEG), comprising of Stamford College, Peterborough College and University Centre Peterborough, have been recognised for their dedication, effort and achievement, having collectively completed 559 hours of activities towards the Skills section of the Duke of Edinburgh Award (DofE).
The programme offers young people aged between 14-25 years a structured framework to develop a wide range of skills that are not only valuable for their personal growth, but also for their future academic and career success. This year’s cohort saw IEG students undertake a wide variety of skills tasks, including Level 3 Uniformed Public Services student of Stamford College, Imogen Hirniak, who attended wakeboarding classes for 6 months. Imogen was fearless in her journey of learning how to carve the water, jump the wake and do various gymnastic moves.
Stephen Burton, Lecturer in Sport and Public Services at Stamford College and DofE Lead across the wider group, shared, “I’m thrilled to see our students clock a combined 559 hours of skills activities! This accomplishment speaks volumes about our learners' hard work, and IEG’s commitment to teaching skills for life. Well done all!”.
Congratulations to everyone involved.
