Sutton in Craven Student Wins Prestigious Business & Enterprise BTEC 2020 Award

Published 25 June


Chloe Wroot Business Level 3, Craven College has WON BTEC Business & Enterprise Student of the Year category – Bronze Award.

Chloe, who lives in Sutton-in-Craven was nominated by her tutor, Jill Frik for being an exceptional learner and a role model to others.

Jill says ‘Chloe is re-sitting her English GCSE and is required to complete a formal presentation as part of this. She demonstrated extreme bravery in choosing to share her very personal experiences of growing up. As many young people struggle with mental health issues and feel they face difficult barriers to their health and well-being this talk was inspirational in putting things into context and making her peers feel empowered and more positive about dealing with their own issues.

Chloe’s classmates respect her as a hard-working, clever, helpful friend who always has time for them and is supportive when needed. Chloe is expected to perform well and make excellent progress on the course – she will be a future leader in Business possibly in a Finance or Management role.’

Chloe chose to study Business as her ultimate aim is to train as an accountant. She says,’I am passionate about the subject because it opens up many pathways into various career opportunities which should help me tremendously. This BTEC course will help me achieve my career ambitions because I organised a work experience placement with Acorn Stairlifts which helped me to receive the basic knowledge within a finance department and then they offered me a job!’

The BTEC Awards are organised by the education company Pearson and are in their tenth year. Due to COVID, this year’s awards were held online for the first time. The 2020 BTEC Awards comprised of 17 categories and was hosted by the presenter of the United Stand, YouTube influencer and BTEC Ambassador, Flex, with awards presented by Double Olympic Gold medallist Max Whitlock as well as actress and former BTEC Drama student at The BRIT School, Kellie Shirley.

Cindy Rampersaud, Senior Vice President BTEC and Apprenticeship, said: “This year I’ve been overwhelmed by the quality of BTEC Award nominations we received and I am delighted to celebrate this year’s winners and the achievements of all learners who will be awarded a BTEC this year. Over the past few weeks and months, we’ve seen how the current pandemic has highlighted the critical role of key workers and individuals who are likely to have followed a vocational educational pathway such as BTEC.”

Well done, Chloe! We are proud to have you in our student community at Craven College.
