East Durham College media student Jerome Wardle was recently presented with the Creative Industries Award at the College’s March Student Awards ceremony.

Jerome, along with 10 other students from different course areas, was presented with his achievement certificate and prize by Interim Principal Eugene McCrossan at a ceremony held at the College’s Peterlee Campus.

Jerome, 25, from Peterlee, is studying on a BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Creative Media Production.

His lecturer Mark Johnson said: “As a mature student Jerome has to juggle his job, family life and college work but he’s shown great dedication to the course.

“Through his methodical and well planned approach he succeeds very well, using his time very effectively ensuring college work is completed and family life is minimally disrupted.

“He has excellent punctuality and attendance and all his written tasks are completed to a high standard and show good evidence of research background reading.

“Jerome works very well in a team and has no problem delegating tasks or having tasks delegated. He is very supportive of other team members. Well done Jerome.”

Lecturer Billy Nicholson added: “Jerome worked with complete dedication and professionalism during our department’s recent trip to Holland.

“Not only did he act in a professional way regarding his responsibilities, he also acted as a leader towards other students, providing them with guidance and support ensuring all tasks were carried out efficiently and with a high degree of success.”
