Mablethorpe Learning Centre has reason to celebrate after one of its students won an acheiver award and the centre welcomed a new tutor.

The first celebration comes after learner Tom Snape battled off tough competition at this year’s Learner of the Year Awards organised by Lincolnshire County Council.

Personal Achiever of the Year, Tom Snape.

Personal Achiever of the Year, Tom Snape.

Nominations were sought from all over Lincolnshire and Rutland and Tom came out victorious and was named Personal Achiever of the Year.

Tom received the award for the excellent progress he has made throughout his time on the Foundation Learning Programme.

During his time at Mablethorpe Learning Centre, Tom has gained many qualifications, including level two in Maths and English and he has shown an enormous improvement in confidence and social skills.

Tom has also been working voluntarily at the Coastal Centre and hopes to gain full time employment or an apprenticeship preferably in IT.

To add to the celebrations, a familiar face to the town will be making good use of her skills after joining the Mablethorpe Learning Centre team.

Debbie Prince will be the new support tutor for the centre’s Foundation Learning Programme.

Debbie is hugely excited about her new post and is looking forward to working with the young people of Mablethorpe and surrounding areas.

She brings with her a wealth of experience and local knowledge which will be hugely beneficial to the post.

The learning centre offers a wide range of training for all ages including the FL: courses for those aged 16 - 18 years and adult learning courses for those aged 19 and over.

Learners are encouraged to go along and enjoy themselves and develop new skills and interests.

Mablethorpe Learning Centre in Seacroft Road in the town is open Monday, 2-5pm, Tuesday, 9am-5pm, Wednesday and Thursday, 9am- 9pm and Friday, 9am- 3pm.
