A HUDDERSFIELD woman is chasing a top award.
Glendene Gill, who provides community education support for Fresh Horizons Ltd, based in Deighton, has been short-listed for one of the 2009 LSIS STAR Awards for outstanding contribution to learning and skills in the Learning Support category.
Glendene works with people who have barriers to overcome and hard-to-reach learners who do not have confidence to engage in further education and training.
Fresh Horizons is the local “not-for-profit” community based in Deighton, Huddersfield, which helps find jobs for people in areas of deprivation.
The STAR Awards celebrate and reward the unsung heroes who work in the further education and skills sector.
Glendene will now attend a regional celebration event for the short-listed nominees and their nominators in Leeds, on October 7.
The celebrity-hosted event will celebrate the achievements of all those who have made the shortlist.
The overall category winners will then be announced at a glittering national awards ceremony at Old Billingsgate in London on November 26.
