Competition for Awards is fierce: perfect module scores and national ranking exam performance are usually needed! It's truly outstanding CIFE college students win awards.

Another 18 students whose all-round contribution to the life of their college life has been exceptional received CIFE College Awards.

CCSS Gold Onusa Charuwana with Mario Di ClementeThe Gold Award winner, Onusa Charuwana from Thailand, was an A-level student at Cambridge Centre for Sixth-form Studies for two years. She achieved four A*s, dropping only 21 marks out of a maximum possible score of 2000. She is now studying Architecture at Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge. She said: “I must thank all the staff at my college, because throughout my two years there they gave me so much of their time and attention. I felt that I was catered for as an individual, both by my teachers and by the pastoral staff. By the middle of my AS year they had given me the confidence to believe that I should apply to Cambridge University, so this award and my success is a great credit to them as well.”

Onusa is pictured with CIFE Chairman Mario Di Clemente.

Baroness Perry, former Chief Inspector of Schools, is the President of CIFE. Lady Perry is a staunch supporter of British universities for their work with young people and for their research. In the Teaching Excellence debate in 2010, Baroness Perry praised the excellent work of teachers. CIFE Colleges were all delighted by Baroness Perry’s statement that, “An inspirational teacher can literally change lives. At its best, teaching is a magic process that lights up the imagination of young people, draws out their curiosity and gives them lifelong skills and understanding.” The award winners here today are signal proof of the truth of these words and CIFE Colleges will endeavour to continue to change lives!
