Jessica Mercer, 17, enrolled on the CACHE Award/Certificate/Diploma in Childcare and Education straight from school. She was awarded a Learner Achievement Award this year.

“My course offered me the opportunity to understand childcare and what it involves through written and investigative study, as well as research and practical work in my placement. It helped me to learn new skills and about myself and what I am capable of achieving.

I am very proud to receive the Learner Achievement Award. It just goes to show that if I work hard I can do anything I set my mind to.”
