    This student has been consistently open and honest, serving as a role model particularly to other young men having difficult discussions. He has always engaged well in class and brought a ray of sunshine into the proceedings. At the same time, he has consistently challenged himself to constantly improve, resulting in being on track for a first-class honours degree. He is a credit to his family, and it has been a joy to have him in the class. He will make a smashing teacher and is exactly what the sector needs.

    James was a student representative in his first year and has progressed to senior rep this year. He has consistently served as a voice for the student community - letting students know when he was attending meetings and taking the time to gain their views. He has always fed back as well, ensuring the dialogue moves both ways. I have been a member of staff here for five years now, but James has been the only rep to really exemplify the role and has taught me so much about how the system works.
