One of OUR hard working young Childcare students has taken home the Jack Petchey Achievement Award after being nominated by her classmates in her Level 2 Introduction to Early Years Education and Care class.

Amina came to the College with no qualifications, but recently started on her Level 3 qualification in September following a successful work placement over the summer.

The Jack Petchey Achievement Award scheme is a reward and recognition initiative which enables schools and youth organisations to celebrate the achievements of their young people, something we’re always excited to do at KCC.

Tracie Fryer-Kanssen, Curriculum Manager, has been amazed by the progress made by Amina, saying:

“Amina has matured into a responsible and reflective learner who has excelled in her placement, successfully securing employment there over the summer. She achieved 100% attendance and punctuality over the year in college and on her placement.

“This was an impressive achievement, especially over the last half term of the course, as Amina lives directly underneath Grenfell Tower and her placement was in the tower itself.

“I’m delighted with the recognition of Amina and the success of all the students; they are a marvellous, eclectic class!”

Kensington & Chelsea College currently delivers a diverse portfolio of CACHE qualifications in a number of sectors including Children and Young People, Early Years Educator, Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools, and Health and Social Care. Find out more at
