East Durham College student Stephen Sharp recently won the New Deal Basic Skills Award at the College’s June Student of the Month Awards ceremony.

Stephen's tutor, Jayne Mearman said: "The programme itself is for only 13 weeks and Stephen has come a long way and has asked for his stay to be extended by a further 13 weeks as he is enjoying it so much. The course has helped boost Stephen's confidence and he is hoping to start his own business once the course is completed. Stephen is always very polite and his positive approach is an inspiration to others and the team. Whilst here Stephen helps others overcome barriers and he is a joy to have on the programme and will be greatly missed when he leaves."
