Student teachers on Reigate College's PGCE programme were delighted to have their hard work recognised when two students were awarded the prestigious Garnett prize. At a ceremony held in the College's County Theatre, PGCE staff, students, college managers and representatives from the University of Greenwich gathered to celebrate this commendable achievement.

Students Ruth Hounsome and Gina Marshall received the award from Dr Gordon Ade-Ojo (all pictured) from the university. They were praised for their creative approach to teaching and the high standard of their academic writing. Programme Director at the time, Dan Lodge, summarised their achievements: "In our first year of teacher training at the College it is a great honour for two of our students to be recognised for this prestigious award. It's reassuring to know that our programme is being well received, not only by those attending it, but also by those who are responsible for overseeing the programme at a national level."
