Students receive Junior Achievement Award at Carrow Road

MORE than 40 school children were awarded educational honours by Norwich City Academy players Harry Baker and Ben Wyatt at Carrow Road.  

The students completed an educational programme at the Club-based Study Centre this term. The NCFC Skills Award uses a peer education approach helping children plan and review learning in a range of activities that interest and motivate them. 

Students cover a range of key skills including, communication, problem solving and self motivation. Best of all this award sees the Study Centre working with UK Youth and students to successfully complete the programme to receive the Junior Achievement Award (JAA), a national award Scheme for children aged 7 to 11. 

Students from Dereham St Nicholas Junior and Avenue Junior School all received awards from the young stars.

Katie Ford, NCFC Study Centre Tutor, said: “We had a fantastic term with both schools; it always impresses to see the enthusiasm and effort the children put in to each challenge especially after a full day of school. A huge thank you to Norfolk County Council and NCFC for their continued support.”  

The programmes are part of Norfolk County Council’s Traded Teaching and Learning Services and since they started at Norwich City in 2007 and are currently used by primary and junior schools as an intervention course.
