Katrina was named ‘Outstanding Public Services Student of the Year’ at a highly prestigious national awards ceremony for her exceptional commitment to her studies and her efforts to help other people.

which saw her excel in the classroom and highlight the dangers posed to young children by abusers.
“I work as a volunteer for the NSPCC and go into primary schools to give presentations to children about the different types of abuse people suffer from,” Katrina said.
“I wanted to do something related to my course and I saw this opportunity. It was one of the few things I could do related to the industry when I was only 16-years-old.
“On the course itself we have been on a lot of trips and have constantly been out and about building up our experiences. It has been really enjoyable. The tutors are also really good and helpful – they have been really supportive.
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it and learned so much.”
