Beverley Mather Access to HE (Humanities and Social Sciences), nominated by Ian Evans, Middlesbrough College.

Bev gets along well with all the students in her class; she listens carefully, understands and responds diplomatically to what she is told. Bev has managed to secure a place on the Social Work degree at Teesside University, where her caring and compassionate nature along with her enthusiasm for learning and her readiness to refine her skills, will no doubt lead to a successful career. Despite her hearing disability, Bev always manages to contribute in lessons, offering meaningful insights in all of her subjects. Her understanding and her academic skills have been developed and Bev is now working at a Distinction standard; she is fully prepared and looking forward to her university course.
