Mark's progress earns him regional award

West Nottinghamshire College health and social care apprentice, Mark Morton, is brimming with pride at his recent award win at the Nottinghamshire Training Network’s (NTN) graduation ceremony.

Mark, (38), from Sutton-in-Ashfield, received the progression award after being nominated by tutors for his NVQ Level 3 in Health and Social Care, which he achieved in a record timeframe of three months before progressing on to his Level 4.

Mark works as a bungalow manager looking after local residents through his employer, Ashfield Court, a residential complex supporting people with autism spectrum disorder.

The NTN awards celebrate and recognise the achievement, excellence and dynamism of individuals and employers in Nottinghamshire.  Mark was one of four West Nottinghamshire College groups to reach the finals.

Mark said: “It was really unexpected to get this award – I’ve never won anything like this before.  I am honoured and I thankful to college staff for all the great support they’ve given me over the years I’ve studied with West Notts.”

Head of apprenticeships, Amanda Mayle, said: “As a college we’re very proud of Mark’s progress and even more proud that he has received the progression award at this prestigious ceremony.  

“We have a great working relationship with Ashfield Court and currently train the care team at Ashfield Court in achieving a range of qualifications including the Learning Disability Award, NVQs in health and social care and other related short courses. Colleagues at Ashfield Court within the health and social care curriculum are equally proud of Mark’s success.”
