The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East Londonâ€™s Student Governor and Studentsâ€™ Union President was announced as â€˜Highly commendedâ€™ in the Student Governor of the Year 2013 awards.
Atish Shah, was presented with his award at the fifth annual ‘Leading the Learner Voice Awards’, which took place on Tuesday 18 June in London.
The honours were presented by Rob Wye - Chief Executive, LSIS and Dame Ruth Silver - Chair, LSIS. Atish who is in the final year of his Business BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma course and a member of the College’s Career Academy, said: “I am thrilled to have won an award for the work I’ve done with the College in representing students both as a Student Governor and as Students’ Union President. I enjoyed the work and I have learnt a great deal from it.”
When Atish began his course he was shy and avoided speaking up in class. Becoming a Student Governor was a huge step and he was suddenly taking part in high level meetings. He gave reports to Governors on what learners wanted and he helped set up a lunchtime film club. Atish was also a Student Ambassador volunteering his time to represent the College at events.
Determined to succeed Atish studies hard and is predicted to get Distinctions in all of his modules. Atish is now a confident speaker in business meetings which will help him a lot in his future career. No stranger to winning awards, Atish also won a College Excellence Award for Business in 2012.
Jane O’Neill, Vice Principal for Curriculum and Learner Experience said of his achievement: “We are all so proud of Atish. He’s done so much for the College, we’re sure he will go on to be a great success for the future and he is every inch a winner.”
