Hannah is named Student of the Year


Kate Mills and Hannah Bartram


THE climax of two years' study for her Secretary's Diploma has paid off for 17-year-old Hannah Bartram who has been named Student of the Year.

The King's Cliffe teenager beat off fellow students at Stamford College to collect the coveted Student of the Year award from sponsors Anne Corder Recruitment.

"I was shocked to win, but absolutely delighted," said Hannah, who won Ł100 vouchers which she plans to put towards a new suit for her first job interview.

"I have enjoyed my two years doing the secretarial diploma and the student of the year competition gave us all a chance to put our work to the test. To win the award was the real icing on the cake for me."

The Student of the Year awards included compiling a CV and covering letter for an office junior advertisement, completing the job application form, attending a mock interview and dealing with an office scenario set by the judges.

"The aim was to give students an insight into the 'real' experience of job hunting," explained award co-ordinators Kate Mills and Marie Carey from Anne Corder Recruitment. "And the standard among students was very high.

"Secretarial courses are currently struggling to attract students because many see it as an unglamorous role. This couldnąt be further from the truth - secretarial grounding often means using the very latest technology and office systems. The secretary is the backbone of any business and the range of opportunities are endless."

Once completing her diploma exams, Hannah already has her first interview lined up on what she hopes will be her step onto the secretarial ladder.

She added: "I am happy to start my career as the office junior and hope to work my way up to a PA role."

Anne Corder Recruitment launched the awards seven years ago to highlight the course work of students and the importance of good careers advice from the college and outside sources.
