Senior Care Assistant Martin Pedley’s hard work and determination has been recognised with an award from Stafford College.

Martin, who joined the Manor House in August 2015 has completed his NVQ2 in HSC and is now working towards level 3 including Medication Management, will attend a prestigious ceremony at Stafford County Showground in September to receive the award.

Glenys Green, Health & Social Care Assessor/IQA from Newcastle and Stafford college Group said, “The senior management team have organised a Celebration Awards night to celebrate those that have gone above and beyond during their course, particularly with the year and half we have had with regards to Covid, because as I am sure you know it has not been easy for anyone.

As staff we were asked to nominate someone who we felt was a worthy candidate for these awards and although I have a lot of worthy candidates, I just felt that Martin had the edge due to what he has experienced, the challenges he has come across with his own learning barriers and how much he has developed during the course. I am delighted that he has won an award!”

Jayne Wood, Registered Manager at the Manor House said, “he is a worthy winner, and he should be proud of what he has achieved. Martin puts the same dedication and commitment to is studies as he does here at the Nursing Home.   He doesn’t let having dyslexia hold him back and he has grown from strength to strength.  Well done Martin!  We are very much looking forward to joining you at the award ceremony in September.”

Jodie McVay, Managing Director added, “supporting our staff through their studies is something we are very passionate about at the Manor House, and to see one of our staff receive such very well-deserved recognition is wonderful.  We thank Stafford College for acknowledging Martin’s hard work”
