Tutor Viv receives commendation

Viv Herbert - Festival of Learning Certificate

Viv receives her Festival of Learning Certificate from Lee Pryor (pictured right), Head of Health, Science and Social Care Professions.

College tutor Viv Herbert has been recognised for her contribution to the development of adult students.

Viv has received commendation for her commitment to students as part of the national Festival of Learning Week, which took place in the summer.

Health tutor Viv, of Wellfield Grove, Penistone has enjoyed a 34 year teaching career at the college and is still going strong, after spending the past 18 years teaching Access to Higher Education (HE) courses.

Viv said: “Teaching gives me a real feeling of achievement. It’s great to help to change people’s lives by enabling them to successfully achieve the qualifications needed to study courses leading to their chosen career.

“17 past students got in touch in the summer to let me know they had achieved first class degrees after leaving college and, when I recently broke my arm, all the NHS staff who treated me were former students. It is always rewarding to see and hear from past students and to find out how they are helping other people on a daily basis.”
